Yes, but almost no-one actually uses the second argument.
And since unused trailing arguments can be safely ignored in
C, commonly they are not even declared.

If you really need the second argument (for instance when
a parent class performs some common initialization based on
subclass-specified information and therefore it needs to
know the actual type being initialized) you cannot use these
