  I think this would be fine.  Perhaps a parameter to the constructor, 
or just an instance variable, could be used to determine whether an
exception is raised or the problem silently ignored.

  The whole bit that you added could be moved before the while loop;
that would avoid the extra overhead without loss of functionality.
