Okay, I thought that there might of been more ambitious plans.  Nothing 
major there.  A few minor points.

Why:
   slice_char   instead of char_slice
   slice_unsafe instead of unsafe_slice

The later reads better, in by view.

Fortunately, there is no mention of depicting any of the byte access 
routines, although its fair to make them unsafe when they truly are.
