That was an intentional decision of mine (I guess I should have
documented it better), since the rest of the code was getting the
character after the parsed integer but doing nothing with it.  In most
cases, it was like the code _expected_ a newline after the integer (such
as the output of a sed -c run, where that holds true), but wasn't
enforcing that expectation.

Should I modify the commit message and push with the newer strict
behavior, or modify the code to keep the older relaxed behavior (but
this time add a VIR_WARN if garbage is found after the parse)?
