Comment (by dons):

 Bryan O'Sullivan:

 I'd rather this wasn't added. It's an acceptable crutch for the short
 term, but
 we shouldn't be using String for text manipulation, and bundling
 implicitly blesses that approach. The text library needs a few weeks of
 and some more testing work for QA, but it'll be the right answer well
 the end of this year.
