I actually find that it is a good idea for a class, but the devil is in
the details, and I think that it might be too limited in the long run.
Sometimes you want to use rfind() instead of find(). Other times you
want to use a regular expression as the index etc.
It is probably a good idea to leave it out of the language. Especially
as it is pretty easy to roll your own.
A better idea is to add the recipe to the Python Cookbook
