Fast split, sort, shuffle string library.

Our review

What we like

Uses hardware acceleration for large string manipulation. Supports length, indexing, slicing, count, substring matching, and split. Works with strings and files. File supports memory maps without loading a copy into RAM and becomes immutable so can be shared across Python processes. Performance up to 12 GB/s vs native 14 MB/s.

What we don't like

Bindings for C and Python only. Rust & JS planned.
