This program compiles:

void func(lazy void a)
{
}

void main()
{
}


It shouldn't. If a were not lazy, you'd get the error

d.d(1): Error: cannot have parameter of type void


It shouldn't be any more legal to have a lazy void parameter than a void
parameter. It makes it seem like lazy parameters aren't properly type checked.

The spec explicitly allows it.

Okay. Why? What possible use does it have?
