It's a very unintuitive behaviour which none of other APIs have. I would
never expect the refcount to be bumped in a case of error, this is a
clear drawback of the API, IMO. Perhaps this is not seen as a problem by
people who have excellent memory and can easily remember about existence
of such non-standard quirks, or by people who're touching the RPM code
frequently.
