This works, but it is inconvenient. It is not always clear at first
what the type of an argument which takes NULL is, especially if one is
modifying existing code. You can compile, see what the error message
says, and copy that type into the code, but I was hoping to avoid

Yes, I am aware of this, which is why I wrote it that way. I was
hoping to learn if someone had developed a cleaner workaround, and to
get the documentation improved if not.
