In the return-status- and usable-with-if-and-while-sense.

OK, I'm game, I just figured we'd meet some resistance trying to
introduce a scheme like that.  However, I don't care to argue more
for the verbose naming scheme (second time it's rejected :), and
adding _P doesn't make much sense for macros with names like
AC_TEST_X, etc.
