 That is the theory, but what does it matter in practice? The only result of 
this that I can see is that it leads to cumbersome 
string->stringbuffer->string back and forths, so I wonder what the actual 
benefit of it is supposed to be? The way I see it it would be much better to 
just go with the string class and improve it as necessary, the buffer should 
be either deprecated or left for cases where the modifications are extensive.
