If the locale actually specifies a NUL thousands separator,
then the library should be able to really generate numbers with NUL
group separators. The test case to verify it can use one of the
string constructors that ignores nulls, e.g.
assert(str.str() == std::string("1\00023\00045", 7));
The library is supposed to allow NUL characters anywhere they
aren't actually needed to terminate a C-style string in an
interface. Any case where it can't, or treats a NUL as a
terminator internally, is a serious error.
