Yeah, seems to me it would only be useful if you were working
on some kind of word game such as a palindrome generator, or
if your string represents something other than natural language
text (in which case all the tricky unicode stuff probably
doesn't apply anyway).

For such a rare requirement, maybe a module on PyPI would be
a better solution than adding a string method.
