A global variable has a fixed, unique memory address, so you can do this:
static int MyContext;
// does not need to be extern, just defined at the top level scope of
some file, usually the relevant class implementation .m file
// type doesn’t matter, because the value is never used
But you can take advantage of a C quirk and actually write this:
static void* MyContext = &MyContext;
This has the interesting property that MyContext == &MyContext, which means you
don’t have to worry about remembering the “&" operator when passing or testing
the “context” parameter.
