Most likely it shouldn't, unless it uses the 0 as separator or terminator 
in what could be any number of strings in the same message.

If the intent is that there can only be one string per list, then the 0 is 
superfluous, as in pd, "a list knows its own length", which is usually not 
the case in C/C++, and which is the reason for the terminator. This reason 
does not exist in Pd nor most other programming languages.
