That's a reasonable thing to want, and quite easily accomplished by
passing `lambda: None` or `lambda *args, **kwargs: None` instead. I
don't think this is difficult to do, nor common enough to justify making
every other `pass` a time-consuming do-nothing operation, instead of
just a do-nothing operation
