Can I just jump in here and say that the discussion about error
handling was originally about the asynchronous callback
handlers, where the error is a parameter to the handler, not a
return code.

However, in the case of the synchronous functions the default
behaviour is to throw the error, but this behaviour can be
modified on a per-call basis.
