PyArg_ParseTuple is defined as returning an "int", but the documentation talks about returning a true/false value, and failling on false.  In addition to being inaccurate, considering that most other functions fail on !=0 ("true"), it can lead to confusion.

int PyArg_ParseTuple(PyObject *args, const char *format, ...)
Parse the parameters of a function that takes only positional parameters into local variables. Returns true on success; on failure, it returns false and raises the appropriate exception.
