Well, usual in the "if you're going to use start and end position in the
first place" way, i.e. not [x,y].

hmm, yeah, that's true. java doesn't have a replaceAt sort of thing, nor
a "copy" method, though its ctors have a startindex +  length option
while it has a "substring" which does take [startindex, endindex)

Do we have a preference ?, I'm easy either way.
