Sorry I didn't clarify in the question, but I didn't indicate that exception handling was implied. There are cases where success doesn't mean that the function ran without error and that using out could make the function more useful.

Example
C#
// Let's say that you run a search to see if a particular product was on sale
public bool IsProductOnSale(guid productId, out Guid[] productResellerIds)
{
  // This function runs a query against the database to see if this particular product has references in the 'on sale' reference table.
  // If it has references, it returns true also sets the array of resellers that sell that product.
  // The data for which seller has the item on sale is returned in the product query.
}

It's not the best example without a better understanding of the overall context. I'm just saying, if you have what you need already, why write multiple functions for what could be handled in one?
if (Object.DividedByZero == true) { Universe.Implode(); }
