If I remember correctly it used to be src as return value in some
version of that patch. I don't know the details of that interim
solution. My current opinion is to return boolean and make an
additional parameter to return src value. However, it could make this
simple function fat.
P.S. Take into account that the user of it is only one so far, I would
like to hear a Mimi's opinion.
