/* String blocks
I had a couple of choices when deciding upon this data structure.
gas uses null terminated strings for all its internal work. This
often means that parts of the program that want to examine
substrings have to manipulate the data in the string to do the
right thing (a common operation is to single out a bit of text by
saving away the character after it, nulling it out, operating on
the substring and then replacing the character which was under the
null). This is a pain and I remember a load of problems that I had with
code in gas which almost got this right. Also, it's harder to grow and
allocate null terminated strings efficiently.
Obstacks provide all the functionality needed, but are too
complicated, hence the sb.
An sb is allocated by the caller. */
