Well, yeah, but I figured that would be something mhbuild would check
and reject if it was invalid.

Are you sure?  According to RFC 2045, Section 2.8, NULs are not
permitted in 8bit data (binary, yes, but we don't claim to support
that).  So I think anything that handles a C string should be fine.
Unless there's something I'm missing (which is always possible).
