Whereas there is much good in the python api, I personally don't think
mimicking it in D for the sake of it is the correct approach. Inspiration
is another matter. Tango have many string functions, and they may be added
to if needs be, but we will do our best to make sure that they are
efficient and consistent with the rest of the naming.
