Well, in the case I'm suggesting here, no, I just don't want to break
API in a stable series (adding API is okay) -- but you do need to put
a limit to the amount of demarshalling and marshalling we're doing for
the sake of API purity. In 0.6.x we'll make more stuff STRV rather
STRING with delimiters.
