Sorry I've taken a while to respond.

Huh. Ok; layout patch attached.

There a handful of problems here:

1. Using strict_strtoul would be inconsistent with all the rest of the
code in this file and, frankly, much of the code in the rest of this
directory.

2. Using strict_strtoul noticably complicates the code (the error code
has to be propogated back up to the caller) to no sigificant effect (we
don't actually care if the user accidentially gives us 0blob, it's really
not actually a problem to us or, particularly, to the user). We certainly
have to propagage the error up, as otherwise the user has no clue why
things aren't working!

There is a case to be made for converting all the simple_strtol calls to
strict_strtoul, in both this file and elsewhere; however, there is also a
case against it: it doesn't actually matter, and the extra error cases add
pointless complexity, and I don't feel qualified to engage with such an
argument on this list.

3. I'm also reluctant to complicate what is a rather trivial patch with
extra code paths which aren't exercised anywhere else in the file (this
is really point 1 again) ... and with which I'm completely unfamiliar.
