Hi Jose,

Your ideas are interesting for switching the MutableSeq class from an
array of char internally to a python mutable string.  However, are you
talking about the UserString.MutableString object? The documentation
suggests its not going to be as fast as a list or a character array:

Note that at some point we will be moving from Numeric to numpy, so
the exact internals of the current array based MutableSeq will change
slightly then.

I will be away most of next week, so don't worry if I seem to be ignoring you ;)
