[ddlm-group] Handling of null byte in CIF2

I hope this already has a simple answer. What is the status
of a zero byte (i.e. value 0) in a CIF ? Is it handled clearly
in the current draft specification, or do we need specifically
to exclude it as an acceptable character, or otherwise make a
comment on how to handle it?

When looking at what I did in the original vcif, I find the
man page states unhelpfully "Embedded nulls in an input file
will confuse the program"!

Thanks for a swift enlightenment.
Brian
