I'm trying to figure this out. Reading the docs hasn't answered this.
If each character in a string is a 32-bit Unicode character, and (as
can be seen in the examples) string indexing and slicing are
supported, then does string indexing mean counting from the beginning
to see if there were any surrogate pairs?
