Which brings us to another philosophical question: What to do with an exception that does not hurt, can't be prevented, nor meaningfully handled?

Sweep it under the rug, like it is done here? Maybe there is not much you can do about it once it has happened. Maybe it's not harmful, but then you would be using exceptions as a means to control program flow. That's not a good idea.

I would say that it's better to use such Pokemon exception handlers to catch and log all unexpected exceptions and log them away. Once in a while someone should read these logs and take a look if this exception can be prevented or handled. Sweeping this under the rug is just lazy.
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.

His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
