Ooh, what fun!  Presuming that the final function returns nothing (and
also presuming that my mental C compiler is functioning):

        void (*(*(*func)())())();

I left out the definition of any parameters for these functions because it
is easier to see the relationship without them.  Insert any such
parameters into the appropriate parentheses.  For example:

        int (*(*(*func)(int, int))(char *))(int *, char **, void *);

I've never done that before ... excuse me while I puke!
