Note that C++ also can do this, so I'm not sure the & is accomplishing the correct goal:


void foo(Klass&);

int main()

   foo(*k);

In C++, it is clear that the _caller_ is doing the dereferencing, and the dereference is also explicit.

However, the in contract does actually enforce the requirement.

And adds null pointer checks even when clearly not needed.
