  When you call a function that uses exceptions you can either catch the
exception if you want or ignore it if it is meaningless in the context.
Higher level functions can catch the exception later.

  With tagged values you _must_ handle the tagged value, even if you
want to ignore error cases.

  So with exceptions you already have the choice.
