The fact, contrary to your feeling, is that I was initially dubious that
is could be made to work as well as it does. I was only really convinced
when I ran stringbench in response to your over-genralized assertions.
It is also a fact that I proposed on the tracker and pydev list a
different method of fixing the length and index bugs in narrow builds.
It only saved space relative to wide builds but did not have the
additional space-saving of the new scheme for ascii and latin-1 text.
