This sounds true in the usual case, though of course there are
pathological cases of commit messages that use the entire character
set. But it is starting to sound more complicated than the
slightly-tricky whitespace indexing logic from my original message.

Yes, something like this would be a nice addition for future versions of
Git. Perhaps simpler would be to add a `-z` option to interpret-trailers
that would change the output format to <tok>NUL<val>NUL or similar.
Maybe I’ll send out a patch if I find some free time. :-)
