i'd like to fix all the uses of "int" that should be "size_t".  basically look 
for any place that uses strlen().  in practice, this probably will never be an 
issue as people won't be using strings that are greater than INT_MAX, but i 
still find it annoying ;).

the other thing i wanted to do was extend FcStrPlus to take an arbitrary 
number of args, but i ended up writing FcStrPlusPlus instead.
