    As I said on the other PR, I don't understand the case where you want to hide exceptions
while pulling values out of a `Row`.  It seems the only time you should get an exception is
when you are trying to extract a column value using the wrong type.  This seems like a structural
problem with your code (its not dirty data or something transient, its going to fail for every
single row).  As such, I don't think that this is a good addition to the API.
