Comment (by boonebgorges):

 Can you point to an example of a publicly available plugin that expects
 `false` as a valid response from `get_option()`? I ask because it would
 almost certainly mean that the plugin has a bug in it - `false ===
 get_option( 'foo' )` will only work if `get_option( 'foo' )` hits an error
 (when a persistent cache is not in use).
