cursor doesn't have to be initialized to NULL.

It may be a style preference, but instead of a cursor variable that
doesn't tell in its name what it refers to, I'd prefer a

	bool found = false;

All this would keep using entity.

And this would be replaced with

			found = true;

The second part of the check isn't needed, it was only meant to check if
the entity has been found.

Here, we'd have 

	if (!found) {

I'f you're OK with these changes there's no need to resubmit, I can
update when applying. Please let me know how you'd like to proceed.
