I thought of it, too. OTOH, it's rather a validity check and doesn't
belong to resource_contains() semantics. If the function returns
false, you don't know whether it's an invalid resource or it's really
not contained.

We may return an error code, but I'm not sure whether such an API
change is needed. Maybe not.
