Perhaps we should just have an in-Emacs solution for the discoverability

For instance, the doc strings of all the string related functions could
have a link "For more string functions, click here" and then you're
taken to a (info?) buffer that lists all the functions in the style of
s.el's overview.  That is, just function signatures and examples, no
in-depth talk at all.

(The functions could link to the "real" manual pages, of course.)
