Could a YCP expert show the correct way (example code)
how to remove an UTF8 sub-string from an UTF8 string?
I.e. how to remove "Bar" from "FooBarBaz" in an UTF8-safe way?

More generally:
Is there documentation how to work on UTF8 strings with YCP in general?

Um, it seems that the documentation does not mention the [] behavior for string
( nor

I fixed that particular bug by using regexpsub() instead of iterating over the
and using [] operator. So I guess the regexp*() functions are UTF-8 safe.

I'm not sure what the correct solution is. Maybe the correct way is to fix the
operator after all... That's why I have opened this discussion, because maybe someone is relaying on the current "buggy" behavior... (I don't expect that
but I'd like to avoid regressions if possible.)
