+1, especially because we also have the inversion when using negative
errno codes for failures and 0 as success, which results in

if (errno == 0) /* success case */

but
if (bool == 0) /* failure case */

now creative people do sometimes

if (!errno) /* success case */

which I think is horribly confusing. So imo for more easier telling apart
of these too I think consistently using the short form for booleans, and
consistently using the more explicit long form for errno checks is a Very
Good Pattern :-)

Cheers, Daniel
