Where does Visual Studio fail?

When you create a new Win32 project in Visual C++ 2005, you get a message loop that looks like this:

// Main message loop:
while (GetMessage(&msg, NULL, 0, 0))
{
if (!TranslateAccelerator(msg.hwnd, hAccelTable, &msg))
{
TranslateMessage(&msg);
DispatchMessage(&msg);
}
}

So what's wrong with that? Probably the fact that the MSDN documentation for GetMessage specifically says not to write code that looks like that! This is what it does say:
Warning

Because the return value can be nonzero, zero, or -1, avoid code like this:

while (GetMessage( lpMsg, hWnd, 0, 0)) ...

The possibility of a -1 return value means that such code can lead to fatal application errors. Instead, use code like this:

BOOL bRet;

while( (bRet = GetMessage( &msg, hWnd, 0, 0 )) != 0)
{
if (bRet == -1)
{
// handle the error and possibly exit
}
else
{
TranslateMessage(&msg);
DispatchMessage(&msg);
}
}

Perhaps it doesn't make much difference in actuality, but you would have thought they would at least make the code in their template consistent with their own documentation (which comes with Visual Studio in the MSDN library, I might add..)
