As lhf pointed out, all these uses are "controled". All string *in* Lua are
binary, but most strings outside Lua are not. So, to make life easier, many
strings in the Lua API are zero-terminated, such as file names,
global-variable names, strings for dostring (you can use dobuffer for
binary strings), event names for tag methods, etc.
