// GTMDebugSelectorValidation.h
// This file should only be included within an implimation file. In any
// function that takes an object and selector to invoke, you should call:
// GTMAssertSelectorNilOrImplementedWithArguments(obj, sel, @encode(arg1type), ..., NULL)
// or
// GTMAssertSelectorNilOrImplementedWithReturnTypeAndArguments(obj, sel, @encode(returnType), @encode(arg1type), ..., NULL)
// This will then validate that the selector is defined and using the right
// type(s), this can help catch errors much earlier then waiting for the
// selector to actually fire (and in the case of error selectors, might never
// really be tested until in the field).
