I can't speak for all compilers, but it should work on the major ones.
The input can be anything except that it must be one argument (i.e. no
open commas) and it must not begin with a parenthetic expression which
is non-nullary. I.e. IS_NULLARY(() abc) is fine and will expand to 1,
IS_NULLARY(abc (p, q)) is fine and will expands to 0, but IS_NULLARY((p,
q) x) violates the domain restriction and should yield an error.
