Ya, I thought about that after I sent my previous mail as well...  an assert
would probably be more useful for checking "This".  I also disagree that "This"
is guaranteed to always be non-NULL.  There really is no way you can force
policy how a user calls the function, so minimally checking (or aborting) on
NULL is a sane thing to do.  It doesn't hurt the code, and catches potential
usage problems.
