This is pretty much what I was saying. Looking for a NULL terminator is only
acceptable when you know that you are dealing with NULL-terminated strings.
If I'm writing generic code that works on C arrays, I'll use N as the size
of T[N]. If I'm writing generic code that works on strings, I'll use N-1 or
strlen. I won't use the Range library in either of these cases because it
tries to guess which one I need.
