This is about the same as having all string routines in 3 flavours:
RTLString, utf-8 and utf-16

the utf-8 and utf-16 could be done by assigning rtlstring to the adequate type.

I think this is probably what we will end up with, because users of a
particular encoding will build convenience routines for their favorite
RTL routines.
