IMO the better way to handle this would have been

int ret, tmpret;

and using tmpret when the function-wide ret shouldn't be touched

Overloading "ret" and the semi-hidden setting of the function-wide ret make
this code less clear than it could be.

Continuing down the overly picky trail: It would be better to focus CHANGES
entries on the impact to library consumers, and omit details like
"locally[-]scoped variables".
