#31598 closed defect (bug) (duplicate)

wp_schedule_single_event() should return true on success, false on failure

Docbloc for wp_schedule_single_event() indicates no return, yet it returns null if the event is already scheduled, or false if the event gets wiped out by a filter. It would be handy if the function returned true on success.

This would aid in logic otherwise performed with wp_next_scheduled() (which is called at the onset of wp_schedule_single_event()). Patch attached.
