I took a quick look in my (possibly outdated) CVS BF-Blender tree, and
it had only five public functions (create, destroy, append, get, and
get_length). Looked very straight-forward, although with such a thin API
it's perhaps not very useful (which, of course, might be why it's not
being used :).

I wrote a very similiar (from the API) module for Purple, which might
be interesting as inspiration or whatever. It's here, for the curious:

Not sure if the comment about UTF-8 is still valid, btw. I'm not even
sure if something like that was what was meant by a "generic string
manipulation library", heh.
