There is value in the ability to have a select case be a nil channel.
In a select a nil channel is never ready to receive and thus isn't a
case that will proceed.
This is useful for allowing you to conditionally prevent certain cases
from proceeding by swapping out the channel for a nil.
While outside a select this behaviour isn't really useful, but for
consistency it works exactly the same.
