Also, keep in mind, depending on the lang of course, throwing exceptions
is not generally a fast thing to do. Exceptions should be used (IMO)
for "exceptional" situations, where something does not behave as it
should. A cache key miss is an entirely valid outcome from a cache
request. Not an exception in my mind.
Does PHP not have nulls?
