I'm just worried about casts because I read somewhere that
strings start with the number of characters inside them (probably
in slices documentation), and not with actual content (though
string literals probably act different in this case).
Documentation on casts say:
Casting a pointer type to and from a class type is done as a type
paint (i.e. a reinterpret cast).
Reinterpretation is rather dangerous if strings are stored
But this test gives me a good hope on this case:
Casting is what I'm going with. .dup.ptr is less clear in this
