<strl/strl.h> on mine. Missed it somehow. Bah.

For future proofing. If you are sure that the interface won't change,
then go ahead and link against it. It just did not feel right.

Yes agreed.

Can't try at the moment but yes the warning should go away. Sorry, I
missed the strl/strl.h header.

Yes, that was what I meant.

No changes so far to the library but maybe in the future. But this is
not a library that will change its API frequently, if ever. So up to
you. As I said, linking against our older version just does not seem right.
