Can you explain this a bit more? Editing of code points is easily possible with String#[]=; there is no need to use byteinsert.

It's important for multibyte String editing. Unicode grapheme characters sometimes have plural code points. In text editing, software sometimes should add a new code point to an existing grapheme character. String#byteinsert is important for it.

I implemented by pure Ruby in my code.
