It's perfectly normal error-handling procedure. In Python, errors are 
usually handled by exceptions, but if you embed a system that doesn't 
support exceptions, e.g. external processes or a C library via ctypes, 
you will of course have to write a little more code in order to handle 
errors correctly.
