Maybe we should document in a single place that NULL is a valid value for a 
reset_control pointer and will result in the API behaving as a no-op ? If you 
want to duplicate the information I'd still prefer talking about no-op than 
about "just returning 0".

What's wrong with bool by the way ? :-)
