Scheme specifies mutable fixed-length strings.
adds two procedures,
string-replace!, which allow the length of the string to change.
This SRFI provides two linear-update versions of these procedures:
that is, the implementation may change the string length or return a
new string instead.
In addition, two convenience macros are provided that make the
procedures somewhat easier to use.
