[Openmcl-devel] with-encoded-cstrs is broken

Thanks.

Another (perhaps simpler, or at least more expedient) approach is to
change WITH-ENCODED-CSTR's lambda list to accept what
WITH-ENCODED-CSTRS is passing it.  Neither of these things is
exported/documented/ready-for-prime-time, but if either of them were
to be it'd most likely be WITH-ENCODED-CSTRS.  (The fact that it and a
few other things happen to expand into a set of nested bindings of a
single variable is just an artifact of the implementation.  It happens
that that particular approach makes it hard to meaningfully use
declarations in the nominally higher-level construct.)

I checked in a change to WITH-ENCODED-CSTR that expects what
WITH-ENCODED-CSTRS hands it, and also tries to do the 0-termination
bit a little more sanely.
