01:00 am - The myth of the "simple String API", that isn't really needed

I saw three things recently which just confirmed that noone learns anything:

Best quote by far, IMO (from the GIT thread):

"Please, no. Let's not pull in a dependency for something as simple as a string library." -- Kristian Høgsberg

As a minor good note, ustr is in Fedora and so pretty much everyone in Fedora land has access to a usable string API with a single -l ... and the newer versions of libsemanage (SELinux) use ustr. I'm not going to hold my breath for mass sanity to occur though.
