[webkit-dev] Custom String class over STL string class

WebKit uses its own string classes instead of using STL string,  I would
like to ask why you want to implement your own string classes? Although
webkit uses UTF-16 internally, we can also implement our own string traits
to manipulate UTF-16 char using STL string.

What is your driving force?  Are there some advantages of own string classes
over STL string? Thank you.
