You're stealthily introducing a new abstraction called "string",
including a typedef and DatumGetString support macros.  Is that really
necessary?  Shouldn't it be discussed specifically?  I don't necessarily
oppose it as is, mainly because it's limited to within varlena.c for
now, but I'm not sure it'd okay to make it more public.

Also, there's a lot of churn in this patch to just remove tss to sss.
Can't we just keep the original variable name?
