Status: Partially Accepted
Change Description: see diff given below
Rationale: I added this, because I think it's useful to implementors to know
ahead of time what the return value is, but the algorithms vary a lot in their
style, and I don't think consistency across all of them is beneficial enough to
justify going out of our way to make them consistent, given the danger of doing
that. So consistency isn't really a convincing argument, IMHO.
