There is nothing more self-documenting than actually appending the zero. 
Claiming toStringz is better in that regard is like saying a+1 is less 
self-documenting than doAddo(a) ;)
There might be other benefits of using toStringz though, (for example, 
it won't add the zero if it is already there, but that does not apply here).
