} INN, for one.  And the problem is the obvious one; INN is written in C and
} unfortunately treats the body like a NUL-terminated string in a few
} places.  It's a bug that should be fixed, but it will require some tricky
} surgery (although Katsuhiro may have made forward progress on it with the
} data handling rewrite in CURRENT).

CURRENT treats NUL as an illegal, if it's in header.  Fixing
it would be trivial.  I'll watch where we go.
