handling failure in RiakCommand#execute

 From my reading of RiakCommand#execute 
I'm curious why there's no call to


I can imagine that future.await() throws an exception for all possible 
failures, but then the docs for RiakFuture 

The typical use pattern is to call await(), check isSuccess(), then call 
getNow() or cause().

Maybe all I'm looking for is a comment in RiakCommand#execute explaining 
why it's not the typical use pattern...but my paranoid self is nervous 
at the moment.

Thanks for helping me understand.
