Yes, I think I can give a formal proof of this if anybody is
interested (hint: split each string x into zero-terminated
substrings x1, x2, ... xn, then consider the results for each
substring xi), but I would like to at least compile this before
giving a definite answer :-)

By the way, is there a list somewhere of useful future extensions
for glibc that could be used to simplify and speed up libstdc++?
For example, collate would be trivial if there were functions
memcoll and memxfrm with the obvious semantics.
