Style Search - exception catching and handling?

So I have basic search and match functionality done for the new style search! I'd link the frontend for people to play with except I haven't populated the category table yet so it's boring.

But! I have the backend code - the branch is up on Github. There's a few little things I know need to be added/cleaned up (particularly old code in ThemeNav, and I need to add caching to the style-search worker).

The more important thing, though, is exception/error handling. I have basically only ever written code for myself before, so I have no idea what I need to check and clean, what needs English stripping, any of that. I would love some help looking things over to see what needs to be implemented!
