Yeah, I suppose I don't have much experience with distributed systems and hadn't considered exception handling.

For ActiveRecord (think model validation), I've used the pattern of appending to a list of errors and then doing @errors.any? to determine whether a call was successful or not - quite liked that. It kind of overkill if you want to bail at the first error though, since errors.count will always be 1.

That's a great post, thanks!
