feature request: -0 option for tr

please add a -0 option to tr, which is equivalent to

    tr '\n' '\000'

this is a useful command for converting \n-terminated input lines to
null-terminated strings suitable for feeding into 'xargs -0' as many
programs can not generate null-terminated ouput by themselves.

it would also be useful if tr did this automatically if invoked
as 'print0'.
