    And now all that's done, how about yet another random person stepping in and
    suggesting NIL or maybe NIL_PTR instead of ZERO_SIZE_PTR?

    I understand the idea is that code need not necesarily care about zero sized
    allocation meaning it won't (generally) need to spell it out but it's still a
    dreadful name... :-(
