i guess you made a typo and now we have a misunderstanding.
>> s: "A string."
== "A string."
>> b: reduce [s]
== ["A string."]
>> insert skip s 2 "modified "
== "A modified string."
== ["A modified string."]
Here s and b/1 are actually the same.
i guess you got confused by the
insert skip s 2 "modified "
if you would store that,
s: insert skip s 2 "modified "
you would be right. but you did not, they are the same, and everyone
is scratching his head ;)

Any problem in computer science can be solved with another layer of
indirection. But that usually will create another problem.
