libXrandr Status return value confusion

There seems to be some confusion in libXrandr as to what a Status return
value is supposed to mean. Some functions just return rep.status (so 0
means success, non-0 failure), others return True (non-0, success) or
False (0, failure).

Could the return value of the functions returning True/False be changed
to Bool without breaking ABI? Any other ideas for cleaning this up?
