Well, no, I account for the nul bytes where I define the table (the
comment actually says as much). sizeof("foo") is 4. Since
additional_text ends up pointing to a string containing

"foo" "\0" "xyzzy" "\0" "..." "\0"

aka

"foo\0xyzzy\0...\0"

this is the right amount to skip. As I said in the cover letter, I did
test this (so that I'd at least catch silly off-by-ones), and I do get
the right strings out.

Thanks,
Rasmus
