I actually would be interesting in knowing more about your
implementation and the impetus behind your design choices. What
guaranties does the CLR make for construction time on a string? I'm
guessing a long running service with a collection of strings, could
slowly impact the time to find a string.  I'm guessing you implement
some sort of hash table of pointers into the linear memory area. Can
you provide what (i'm guessing there are lots of them)
implementation optimizations you do/can make given an immutable
