Description

The Parrot_str_free function is dangerous and unuseful, see for example r39978. The garbage collector must always take care.

I propose to deprecate it now, remove it from the strings pdd, and make it a do-nothing now.

+1 from me.

We can deprecate it now, and note it as deprecated in the PDD. We can't change the behavior until after 1.4, though.
