The first step seems to be easy with the right const handling, I mean

void Notice(const char* msg);
void Notice(const string& str) {Notice(str.c_str());}

The other solution (with Command ObjectStr) isn't that simple, I guess.
But it would be nice to use the full power of C++, and nice to know
your plans about that. And take part in design, maybe...
