I just did a quick google search for the definition of null. Here is what
it came up with.
1. having no legal or binding force; invalid.
2. having or associated with the value zero.

It strikes me John is using definition 1, whereas Ander is using definition
I had assumed definition 2, just the difference between a legal and a
mathematical background I guess.
