Should this effort be coordinated with Unicode-related
encoding/decoding? See the Encoding class in
Twan van Laarhoven's CompactString library:


and Johan Tibell's UnicodeByteString proposal:


There was a recent discussion about these, mostly
the latter:


I hate to keep bringing up serpents, but note that
Python has a nice codec abstraction that provides
efficient encoding and decoding of character
encodings, data encodings, data compression,
etc., all with the same interface. You can attach these
things to file handles, or apply them to strings. Makes
sense to me.
