No objection, FWIW. Looks to mirror Python’s os.devnull. AFAICT, NUL
does not necessarily exist on a Windows system, but that can’t be
helped. http://bugs.python.org/issue1311 suggests there may be problems
stat’ing NUL on Windows–affecting #exists? and #stat, possibly–but
I’m not in a position to verify.
