Subject: groupdel gives no error like userdel does

if I (attempt to) userdel a non-existing user, userdel says:
> userdel: No such user `johndoe'
and returns 1.
But groupdel gives no such error, and even returns 0, always. Wouldn't
it be better if both calls behave similar?
I've been looking through the source src/usr.sbin/user/user.c (userdel
and groupdel are the same binary), but I'm not sure were the error
should be triggered, in groupdel or in modify_gid. Any hints on this?
