ustr (Micro string library) is a string API for C. It has tiny overhead
over just plain strdup(), is much safer, is easier to use, is faster
for many operations, and can be used with read-only or automatically
allocated data. You don't even need to link to the library to use it
(so there are no dependencies).

[[ compiled using gcc-4.3.4-1 ]]

libustr is a new prerequisite of the run2 application launcher. This
package is specific for cygwin-1.7.  The simultaneously-released
libustr-1.0.4-2 packages are for cygwin-1.5.
