That kindles me to ask if there is no function to set the text
properties for a (sub)string. The available functions which set text
properties seem to work only on buffers.

| Completely replace properties of text from START to END.
| The third argument PROPERTIES is the new property list.
| The optional fourth argument, OBJECT,

| If OBJECT is omitted or nil, it defaults to the current buffer.
| If PROPERTIES is nil, the effect is to remove all properties from
| the designated part of OBJECT.
