Sorry I don't see what this (very floppy) worded page (that I of course 
did know) should say me about the stuff in question to me:
  - static (known to the compiler) vs dynamic (stored with the string) 
encoding type
  - how the compiler and library handles RawByteString as source and/or 
target of an assignment.
