Sounds like adding a new method, catchException(...), that returns the
exception it catches, would be a reasonable compromise. I can't think
of any reason that the method that catches-and-returns needs to be the
existing API, which does something different.
OTOH, I really don't have a problem with doing a try/except/else
myself if that's what I need.
