I think we should always throw for every language except Python.  If  
we can special case Python to no do so by default with some defines,  
that would be great. Python unfortunately has a lot of legacy, so  
having exceptions on by default will cause a lot of trouble for  
existing code.  When we were developing the ng bindings, Python was  
the only fleshed out binding, so having them off by default made  
sense, but now that all of the other languages have come together,  
Python's special case is causing trouble for the rest.
