Yes, but this is one of the things that the infrastructure (i.e. JCR) should provide (without
a penalty) instead of having to handle this again and again in your application or use ugly
exception handling.

But I agree that a get<Something>() returning null if it's not existing is also a very
good idea, currently lacking from JCR.
