move de-nulling to processor

Antenna, like the Socorro collector, removes null bytes from keys and values in the raw crash data. It's been doing it for a while, so it might be "safe", but my basic problem with this is that I don't think the collector should be modifying the crash at all.

Seems like it makes more sense for the processor to do a de-nulling pass. Then if we discover bugs or oddities, we can fix them in the processor and re-process the affected crashes. Further, the processor already has a notes field where it can log how it changed the crash and what problems it encountered.

This bug covers looking into moving the de-nulling code. Maybe it's something we wait on thinking about until after we've rewritten the processor.
