Actually, maybe this should not be the case. After all, how do you do  
error checking in your program then? You'll have to add ifdef's  
everywhere, while this is supposed to be platform-neutral code.

If e.g. on windows the result $ffffffff is not possible, we can  
define that one as an error result (or, similarly, define -1 as an  
error result and change the result type to cInt).
