    Just for the record, we discussed this on IRC.

    Those APIs use NSStrings, because in various cases the methods that
listen happen to do pointer comparisons instead of content comparisons,
so we do need to expose the actual NSString, we cant use a new NSString
with the same contents.

    We can revisit this in specific cases, but I would rather spend time
elsewhere for now.
