Why is NULL ugly?  Returning nothing is usually the way to
indicate the there's no response/return-value, right?

Null for the outgoing is something curious.  If we had an existing engine,
and did not want to modify it, we would take such ad-hoc approach.
We are designing from scratch.  Why do we take such ad-hoc
solution?  I feel that this is very UGLY.  If most people feel that
this is VERY beautiful, this must be a good approach.
Is this the best way to support one-way?
