so this library

1. don't intended to be used with 6.4
2. don't support Unicode
3. don't intended to be used with small strings (<20mb)

extremely useful thing!

i still propose to make universal Array->ListLike interface converter,
with additional functionality for StorableArrays. this will solve
problems with efficiency in 6.4 and with memory fragmentation and will
provide us more universal solution that can be used with 2-byte and
4-byte packed strings and with all other combinations of array/element types
