I should also add, that, in general, your snippet could be simpler, without
penalizing the performance: typically reserve is only called once, at the 
outset, if we can estimate in advance the final size of the string. Otherwise,
internally, the implementation is *automatically* able to quickly grow the
capacity to satisfy efficiently a series of consecutive append: in our implement
the capacity automatically doubles every time is reached by the size of the 
growing string.
