   I agree with you that s.el, in and of itself, is not a mess.
   I can't speak for AMS, but maybe he would agree.

Indeed I do, and this sums it up well.

   However, adding s.el to Emacs, or to GNU ELPA, would make a mess.  The
   mess would be the juxtaposition of Emacs's own string functions, with
   the s.el string functions -- two different interfaces for the same
   job, similar in some places and disparate in others, in an
   unpredictable way.
