Although this change appears to be correct and does simplify the code,
I think it also makes it a bit more opaque. With the explicit
`nr_found == 1`, it is quite obvious that the function considers
"success" to be when one and only one entry is found and any other
number is failure. But with the revised code, it is harder to work out
precisely what the conditions are. Having said that, I think a simple
comment before the function would suffice to clear up the opaqueness.
Perhaps something like:

    /* If exactly one worktree matches 'target', return it, else NULL. */
