recv_into() an HTTP request and .lower() it inplace to ease parsing?
But I mostly raise that with MicroPython hat on, there it may be not
necessarily superfluous. But then, having a separate module for such
operations doesn't seem too bad, except that it would be retrograde
action after "string" module deprecation in favor of methods.
Anyway, I targetted that question for python-ideas on some easy day, and
just took a quick chance here seeing someone else talking about inplace
bytearray operations ;-).
