>From what I get from this conversation, the ruby strings are strings
with a few extra features (mutability, carrying encoding). Wouldn't it
be logical for the ruby muteable strings to extend System.String? Are
there methods that only work on .net strings and not on ruby strings?

Forgive me if this is a stupid question, I'm not very well educated in
how muteable strings work :)
