Since I don't know the parser coding, I won't comment on the relative implentability (implementableness?) of the syntax options that Nick,
P.J. and Raymond suggested. But all seem readable and debugable.
Nick's option 1 seems like it might be the most understandable to
a Python novice.
Would the full syntax include multiple Exceptions after the "if"?
