Shorthand for empty function in Node.js

In JS, there is shorthand for an empty object which is {}. Is there shorthand for an empty function in JS?

The reason being, as functions are first-class objects, we use them as arguments more often, but passing in an empty function is at best ugly.

var foo = baz(function(){});

In order to declare a function, at somepoint we have to declare function(){}.

I would like more Node.js APIs to require a (callback) function to be passed, so the API doesn’t deceivingly look synchronous. Perhaps one step in that direction would be to create shorthand for empty placeholder functions.
