Affects Version/s: Release 1.6
Fix Version/s: None
It would be useful if a few common functions from Java's String were available as Clojure functions for the purposes of increasing portability to other Clojure platforms like ClojureScript.
The functions below also cover the vast majority of cases where Clojure users currently drop into Java interop for String calls - this tends to be an issue for discoverability and learning. While the goal of this ticket is increased portability, improving that is a nice secondary benefit.

Patch: clj-1449-more-v1.patch (draft version only – a more serious contender would incorporate Alex Miller's comments from Dec 2 2014)
