Comment (by nickm):

 > Instead of using a null pointer, use the address of a static object of
 the appropriate type. We presumably don't care too much about the extra
 memory footprint if we're building test code.

 Hm. This part might be harder to do.  When I try to do this approach, I
 get an error: "initializer element is not computable at load time".
 Apparently comparing the addresses of members of two static objects is not
 something I can stick into an initializer?
