Yeah, the decisions that need to be made are where this code would live,
and whether hiding exceptions is something that wants to be done. Normally
it's very frowned upon. But a low level code library can't be dependent on
a logging api.

+1  =  I'm in favour of this and will help.
+0  =  I'm in favour of this, but lack time to help.
-0  =  I'm against this, but don't consider myself to be blocking it.
-1  =  I'm against this and am blocking this happening.

When something is voted on, 3 +1 and no -1's are needed.

I'm probably a bit off there, different projects having different rules
etc, but it's around about the right ideas. Even when things aren't being
voted on, people tend to summarise their view on a subject with a + or -
1. The +-0 is mainly used for the official votes.
