I can see the practicality of null-terminating, but I would really like
to preserve the flexibility to reverse that decision in the future.
Forcing people to go through str::as_bytes() to observe the null
terminating seems like a win—except that I'd probably call it as_cstr()
or something like that, to emphasize it's null-terminated-ness.
