Why not left the length parameter instead? First, current code uses "length". Second, the main effect from C side is that an argument is a pair (pointer, length), not just a pointer. Third, currently everywhere in Python documentation and error messages the used term is "null character/byte", so if left the zeros parameter, it should be renamed to allow_nulls or allow_nuls. Fourth, "y#" needs zeros=True for distinguish from "y", but "y*" allows nulls and has no the zeros parameter.
