In the discussion of “SE-0027 Expose code unit initializers on String”, Dave Abrahams and Doug Gregor alluded to a re-evaluation of the String type [1, 2]. Is any information available already about this re-evaluation? I’m particularly interested in whether it includes changes to the definition of Character, whose current tie to extended grapheme clusters is quite problematic for some Brahmic scripts.
