getWriteableStringContents() returns currently NULL when the str is empty
I'm wondering if it safe so return &s[0] instead? (comes up when running virtualenv)
http://www.cplusplus.com/reference/string/string/operator[]/ says: C++11
If pos is equal to the string length, the function returns a reference to the null character that follows the last character in the string, which shall not be modified.
do you think it would be safe?

oh interesting
yeah I guess if there's guaranteed to be a null character there for a zero-length string then it sounds like it should be ok
