sugar3.datastore.datastore.get raises an incorrect exception

I found that sugar3.datastore.datastore.get raises an invalid exception when the object_id is not found.

For example, I created a playlist with Jukebox that includes some files from a Pen Drive, some others from the Journal and another one from the Documents folder.

Then, I closed Jukebox and copied that Journal's entry to the Pen Drive. After that, I opened that Journal's entry into another XO (with the same version of Jukebox -from git-) and I got an exception similar to this one.

>>> from sugar3.datastore import datastore
>>> datastore.get('2213-12345-1252-3456-3432-3466')
Traceback (most recent call last):

I think it's invalid / incorrect because it doesn't say anything about that the entry was not found.

The error message doesn't seem that bad to me. I wouldn't bother fixing this... But patches accepted.
