It can also be "just because" (i.e. a question of habit).  In any case,
the point is that renaming the `s` library will go against the grain so
the old `s` will likely stick around anyway.  So I think we're better
off either switching to `s` or coming up with our own `string.el` which
we can design without having to worry about compatibility with `s`.

I wouldn't bet on it.  It might have been true before `s` existed, tho.
