I apologize... the bits I saw the "< 0" testing were in the following link. The examples in the repo don't have either try/catch or the int testing such as in the second link.

Can you be more specific please? A quick git grep shows only a few cases
which don't compare APIs rather than some integer variables:

libvirt-python.git $ git grep -C 3 -e '< 0' --or -e '== 0' -- examples/

And those try/catch statements - in our basic examples we don't do any
rollback and simply just let python abort.
