This proposal separates the issue of character
encoding from the issue of null-terminated strings
vs. buffers with length.
Yes, it also insulates the C code from Scheme's internal
representation of strings, which may not be as single
contiguous blocks of characters. Unless Mike objects we'll
add this, or something like it to the SRFI.
