    Another note: in NSExpression you use "IntPtr" to represent objects.
This is not correct.

    When you see "id" you should substitute that for the most specific
derived type from NSObject.   In the worst case scenario you should use
NSObject, but never IntPtr.

    There is one exception, we use "IntPtr" as the return value for the
special name "Constructor" used for the various "init" methods.
