Mutable Function Parameters

fun (var convertView: View?) {
    if (convertView == null) convertView = View(activity)
    // do something with convertView

This was discussed here: Function parameters are “val” not “var”?
The rationale for this behavior is explained here in “Parameters are Immutable” section:
