Well in my design that I'm about to propose there will be separate
std::unicode::grapheme_cluster type and something that is returned by
iterators of std::unicode::grapheme_cluster_sequence which is a grapheme
cluster but uses reference semantics so it is possible to replace
grapheme clusters inside a sequence.
