Removing mutability not only means splicing out the code that actually changes
content, it also means removing unnecessary checks and revisiting assumptions
about invariants.  Changing up to use iterators while making the transition
makes sense.

Ha!  I hadn't thought of the recursive String approach for sharing buffers.

We probably want to use malloc() directly rather than MALLOCATE, which can be
wrap a different allocator and must be paired with FREEMEM.
