Basically agree.  I have worndered for a long time how to implement
this, because error handling in find-file is too complex to control.

One idea is to re-throw the error in find-file-not-found-functions
(patch attached).  I'm not sure if this approach is palatable as other
basic Emacs commands.  Anyway, testing would be much appreciated.
