I injected a little confusion by having two threads :)

The thread was:

"[LANG] unnecessary boxing in StringEscapeUtils etc"

Sebb had a complaint re: performance concerns with boxing and Stephen
suggested a solution, while also considering the performance issue

I spent some time a week back playing with the API as I disliked the
overlap between Range<Integer> and Range<Character>. Autoboxing,
generics and char-int conversion all get fiddly in the API and not

I'm tempted to move the current (Range<Integer>) constructors to a
static factory method, and then go ahead and release - text.translate
is not a major part of the Lang API. The reason for doing that is so
that we can deprecate it later on if desired and not have to worry
about lots of clashing with the replacement methods.
