Ahhhh, yes, of course, that's true of course. But that doesn't have to do
anything with structs. It wouldn't work outside structs, either.

However, with statically sized strings (which can be identified because
there's no data about them in the MEM_allocN pool), it can just use sizeof.

And manually allocated strings inside structs of course work anyway.

So, I see no problems ;)
