1:57:32azmreece Q: I've been watching a fair bit of the backlog, and you seem to return values from functions via parameter pointers, even when you're not returning anything else (i.e. `void Func(int Arg, int *Return)` instead of `int Func(int Arg`)). Is there any particular reason behind this? I can imagine it maybe stops the API changing too much over time?
