 Zero-delimited pictured numeric output

It has occurred to me that it's trivially simple to modify the a Forth
system such that all pictured numeric output within an
application produces zero-delimited strings:

: <#  <# 0 hold ;
: #>  #> 1- ;

The redefinition of <# places a zero-byte at the end of the generated
string, and the redefinition of #> adjusts the resulting string length
to exclude the zero-byte.
