struct None; // undefined struct as bottom type
alias None* HWND;
enum INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE = cast(HWND)-1;

static assert(__traits(compiles, {HWND h; h = INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE;}));
static assert(!__traits(compiles, {None n;}));
static assert(!__traits(compiles, {HWND h; ++h;}));
static assert(!__traits(compiles, {HWND h; h + 1;}));

HWND foo(HWND h)
{
    return h;
}

void main()
{
    HWND h;
    assert(h is null);
    h = foo(h);
    assert(h is null);
    h = foo(INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE);
    assert(h is INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE);
    h = foo(null);
    assert(h is null);

If it does, it shouldn't, because that struct is of the wrong size.

Windows handles are, AIUI, always of the platform pointer size.  A zero-size handle type 
would be useless, as only one distinct handle could exist that way.

struct HWND {}
void main() {
    static assert(HWND().sizeof == 1);
}

Yeah sorry, I didn't properly test this but just tried compiling it.
It should be the size of the pointer, yup.
