I dont think we should silently strip zeros from outbound strings. There are
other possible causes -bad data source, someone attempting to send binary data
as a string, etc, which need to be notified. silent fixup is too dangerous. 

So if we add a fix, I would prefer the brutal 'throw a runtime exception you are
trying to send illegal data' kind of fix, and let the sender sort out their
data. At least that way you know what is going wrong, and where it is going
wrong, rather than trying to debug stuff with hex dumps the way you must have
had to do.
