Good idea. I will upload a changeset into Inbox.

Also, #setString:setRunsChecking: and #setString:setRuns: are 
categorized as private but are being sent directly from other classes 
like converters and streams.

Should I change senders to send #string:runs: instead and merge these 
two methods? Are there any implications for efficiency if the check is 
done at every Text initialization?

Thanks and Regards .. Subbu
