Add an err argument to _begin so that on non-fatal failures in future ref
backends we can report a nice error back to the caller.
While _begin can currently never fail for other reasons than OOM, in which
case we die() anyway, we may add other types of backends in the future.
For example, a hypothetical MySQL backend could fail in _being with
"Can not connect to MySQL server. No route to host".
