:doc "This is a library of string manipulation functions. It
is intented as a replacement for clojure.contrib.string.
You cannot (use 'clojure.contrib.string) because it defines
functions with the same names as functions in clojure.core.
Instead, do (require '[clojure.contrib.string :as s])
or something similar.
1. Be functional
2. Most significant argument LAST, to work with ->>
3. At least O(n) performance for Strings of length n
