If you are frequently want to modify a string in such a way, that this
is the recommended way to do so. It might be that there are
mutable-string implementations out there that make that easier for you -
but in the end, it boils down to using list, so that the overhead of
concatenating strings is encountered only once, on the end when you
actually need the result.
