Making it a subclass of str doesn't do what you want. Lots of places in the
C code access the string buffer directly (for performance) instead of going
through the __str__ method. They will all get the value the string had when
it was created rather than its current value.
There is currently no way to implement a true replacement of the str type in
Python code. Even an extension type is somewhat limited in its ability to
emulate a string.
