Well, I'm a little torn.  I don't mind offering the 'feature' of not wasting
the memory on failure (now that I know it isn't consistent across platforms
already).  You are half right though - They can't test for 1.2 for example
and expect the API to behave one way or the other.

In 1.3 of course, we can add 'promises' on that behavior.
