But this doesn't allow the multi-Char functions to be added to
byetstring/List with the same name. For example:
>> split - - Text -> Text -> [Text]
>> - - split Char -> Text -> [Text]

I can do
split ", "
etc with a text, but not with a bytestring, and if we agree to add that
functionality to bytestring then we'll have to call it splitString or
splitMany or some other, different, name.
