For me it doesn't seem a good idea to drop elib.el,
unless it's proven buggy.

You may re-view `string-replace-match' for example as
`dired-string-replace-match', slightly changed.

However, with this new name, it's not as easy detected
as the original function.

Just checked `string-replace-match': it works fine.

Too other programs may rely on elib.el as emacspeak


This directory includes stack-f.el and string.el from
Elib 1.0.
