Exceptions would be nice if it were possible to implement them without hideous run-time overhead. Checking return values isn't really so hard, though.

Why is making a component framework "totally OO" a mistake? How do you even define "totally OO"?

I meant that I think it's a mistake not to implement exceptions in a framework that is aiming to be "totally OO"

Sorry for the confusion
