My attention here results from the package as such and
an impression, it would be helpful for
elisp-programmers to have collections of
general-purpose resources.

For novices this might be of special interest.
Currently general-purpose functions are written again
and again, because existing are scattered and people
ignore them. See already mentioned string-strip

In this context also the different name of already merged
functions matters:

elib's `string-replace-match' AFAIU is easier to call
 and remember than the (slightly changed)
 `dired-string-replace-match' now in dired.el.
