I'm using the public functions of Python's built-in compileall module.

There doesn't appear to be documentation of what each of these functions returns.

I figured out, for example, that compileall.compile_file() returns 1 when the file compiles successfully, and 0 if not.

If this is "official" behavior, it would be good to see it documented so that we can rely on it.

I'd be happy to submit a patch to fix this if a committer is willing to shepherd a new contributor (me) through the process. Otherwise, this is probably a quick fix for experienced contributors.
