The Parrot community definitely would like an Immutable string
implementation! If you need any help with your proposal, do not
hesitate to ask on this list and/or on #parrot irc.perl.org .
Different people are active on IRC and the mailing list, so it is good
to do both to get a full range of feedback.
Good luck with your GSoC proposal and welcome!
