This is what wonka does for internal string representations btw.

It is a pain to maintain a forked version. And the best way to make sure
you won't have to is to provide patches to make these things possible
for the runtime to tweak. I am sure others will love to help with that
if you come up with some nice optimization points for the core classes.
Just supply some patches and a reference implementation and we can see
if we can incorporate it in the default build. We make regular releases
(once every 2 months at least).
