If all string manipulations are to have prefix
`string-' then I guess you're arguing for
that for a function such as `format' too, right?

And does string manipulation for this include
strings that have particular formats or meanings?
Filename-string manipulations (strings, in the end)?
Date-string manipulations (strings, in the end)?

I'm guessing you'd say "no" for the questions in
the last paragraph.

(There are a lot of string-manipulation functions.
The devil is in the details.)
