But: it is quite surprising that libxl__abs_path can be legally passed
a NULL for any of its parameters.

There are no call sites in libxl which can pass a NULL.

I think that if we are to retain this feature, it ought to be
documented, at least.


  _hidden char *libxl__abs_path(libxl__gc *gc,
                                const char *s /* NULL OK */,
                                const char *path);
