[Mono-devel-list] System.String::Intern()

The System.String::Intern() method confuses me so much my brain hurts.
This function gets a reference to a string in the intern pool. All
unique strings exist once in the intern pool, saving memory. However, to
call the Intern function, one of the parameters is a string, and because
all strings are in the intern pool, the parameter must be in the intern
pool, so what is the point in calling the function?
