Yes, I agree.  The heap locking thing really is quite a sharp
tool... I wouldn't want people to pull it out wantonly.  In my current
proposal, heap locking wouldn't be implemented before we wouldn't have
moved to UTF-8 anyway, so I'll add a copy-to-buffer variant and mark
the heap locking stuff as 'maybe, eventually'.
