     That appears to no longer be true (emacs-24 branch):

     rplaca is an alias for `setcar' in `subr.el'.

     (rplaca CELL NEWCAR)

     Set the car of CELL to be NEWCAR.  Returns NEWCAR.

If I recall right, rplaca traditionally returned CELL, not NEWCAR.
Thus, this change seems like an error.

Hi Richard,

IIUC this was just an example.

Once mentioned a multitude of string-strip functions, used to remove 
whitespace-characters from beginning or end of string - while missing a 
canoncial form.

Maybe past upcoming release discuss the standard library should pay.
