That is a great idea – I like the fact that the signatures become more consistent with the rest of the library as well.

Subject: [getdns-api] getdns_return_t for destroy methods


I would like to propose that we change the signatures of the destroy routines such that they return getdns_return_t.

  *   getdns_return_t getdns_context_destroy
  *   getdns_return_t getdns_dict_destroy
  *   getdns_return_t getdns_list_destroy

This would especially be useful in getdns_context_destroy since implementations may decide that destroying a context within a callback is allowed or not.  There are some fun edge cases we’ve been dealing with regarding this.  Also, it keeps the API consistent with the other methods.
