NACK.  I audited all existing callers to ensure that they really didn't
care if str wasn't updated; xend_internal.c:sexpr_to_xend_topology() was
the trickiest, but I'm convinced it was safe (you might get one more
iteration of the outer while(*cur != 0) loop than previously, but no one
used the modified cur before anyone else modified cur again in a manner
that would work from either the old or the new position).

Better would be to modify the function signature, adjust all callers (as
proof that our audit was sane), and as a side-effect, get rid of some
nasty casting.  Alternative v3 patch coming up.
