If that hack is used, I would do it via something else instead of NULL
directly, so it is clear why people do such "lame" thing. Basically
"#define UNUSED NULL" or "#define IGNORE 0" or whatever you choose but
something that clearly says "hey, this is just filler, ignore it" and
that can have the reasoning written in a comment above the #define
line(s) (== comments that say why and how, thus avoiding silly
questions, good comments).
