Well, we have established that "elements" of a std::list are only
called so in a "synthetic" sense. I think characters are elements of a
std::string in exactly the same sense, so I think the same API should
support accessing both.

Moreover, the "summary" has the notion of pretty-printing, and does
not seem logically suitable for actual-data access.

What do you think of this?
