Maybe, yes. I am not a fan of mixed return types. I know PHP is rather liberal 
about that but I too often found myself cornered because I did a foreach on 
some return value, only to find out that some ugly coded (IMO) function 
returns a FALSE of an ARRAY(). ugh.

I think a set of such helper modules might be a better plan. I named this 
function is_node_page (*is*) on purpose, it is a test. 
in addition something like find_page_node_id() or even get_page_node() etc 
could be other handy modules.
