  My initial reaction was the same, then I looked at GetMaxVcpus and
other examples and converted the code accordingly.

In the cases I checked and looked for it seems the network call()
return values is always 0 or -1, and looking at virDomainGetMaxVcpus()
it does use

struct remote_domain_get_max_vcpus_ret {
    int num;

  same for virDomainNumDomains()

and I also see

struct remote_num_of_defined_domains_ret {
    int num;

 in the src/remote/remote_protocol.x right now,
remoteNumOfDefinedDomains( does use  remote_num_of_defined_domains_ret ret;
and remoteDispatchNumOfDefinedDomains() do use a
remote_num_of_defined_domains_ret *ret argument, so I'm wondering if we
are really looking at the same code.

  In the case we just return 0 for success and -1 in case of error, we
clearly don't need the return structure, but all examples I checked for
an full int reurn used a structure. So I assume the change is needed,
or at least it's safe :-)
