In the _open functions, associated can be NULL, because that just
means you don't want to associate the new baton with an existing set.

In the _try functions, it can be NULL, but if it's not, it's still
okay if the set does not have the requested baton -- just _open it and
add it to the set.

They should crash, yes; and they are the only ones that should.

I'll have to look at this in more detail, to tell whether it's just a
doc problem or an actual code problem. (Did the clarification above
change anything for you? That would indicate a doc problem...)
