if a delegate is a fat pointer, containing the context pointer and the function
pointer, why isn't it legal to have a context pointer of null, allowing any
function to be viewed as a delegate? It will save lots of effort, making
duplicates of code for function pointers and delegates. To resolve the problem
of the hidden context parameter of the delegate function, for example, a simple
test for null may be used to determine whether the context pointer should be
passed or not.
