Since a SharedFlow never ends and collecting it "never completes normally," it'd be possible, semantically correct, and possibly illustrative to add a "fauxveride" of SharedFlow.collect returning Nothing.

Since it's an extension method, it can't actually be an override, but adding it as an overload should have effectively the same result.

Inspired by https://stackoverflow.com/q/68121398/869736.
