Not 1 or 0.  It returns 0 or some other value.  Almost the same,
but not quite.

You could do that.  But once you run the query, that's it.  You'll
have nothing to use with any of the other mysql functions because
you need to pass to them the value that mysql() returns.  So while
the above might tell you whether or not the query succeeded, that's
all you would get out of it.
