And whenever the callback returns a non-zero, the loop is interrupted, so
that one can stop when the needed prime is found.

If the loop can be interrupted, it is probably better to return the last
used prime (or zero if there are none in the range).

The prime counting function can have its own interface and its specialised
code: with a bitwise sieve, popcount is faster than some kind of loop.
