<pre wrap="">Yes. It went to my todo list and is awaiting some free raymond-cycles
to finish it up. I've been task saturated of late but would like to get
this a number of other patches complete for Py2.5.
no need to wait for any raymond-cycles here; just point me to the latest
version of the proposal, and it'll be in the trunk within 30 minutes.
IIRC, Skip had developed a smart version that returned lazy string
objects that kept a reference and pointers to the original string
(instead of making its own copy of the string components). The string
subclass would expand itself and free the reference if necessary for a
subsequent string operation. The main purpose was to handle the cases
where one fragment of the other was never used or just had a length
check. Also it was helpful when partition was used lisp-style to
repeatedly break-off head/tail fragments.<br>
<pre wrap="">> are these still valid?
