Maybe I'm just being a bit of an idealist here, but if there is an
operation, string:join, I'd really, really, like its inverse operation also
to be in the string module, namely, string:split. It's the symmetry.
Especially since there's no earthly reason I can see that string:split
should be (or have been) omitted.

I suppose they could rid of string:join and we could all use scutil:explode
(and I presume its inverse, scutil:implode?). But then that's another
module/application I need which is not part of the standard release.
