[erlang-questions] [eeps] EEP 35 "Binary string modules"

My opinion is that it would be more convenient to have a (single) module 
that provides string handling on the iodata() data type.

Right now we have some functionality available only for list strings, 
some for binary strings, and some for iodata strings;
some with unicode support, some without. This new module would 
definitely broaden the available functionality, but it
feels like we will still have to convert b/w iodata, lists and binaries.

Regards,
Zoltan.
