Agreed.  Logging was one of my examples, and it's a bad one for the sake
of this discussion.  In practice no logging API I'm aware throws Runtime or
checked Exceptions, but silently fail as far as the calling code is
concerned, and perhaps attempt to report the failure to the user via some
other channel.  Indeed given that the actual logging typically happens
asynchronously, this is pretty much the only possible strategy, on top of
being the most desirable one.

For the remainder of this discussion can we drop the logging example?
There's still three (or two, depending upon how you factor it) concrete
examples out there.
