Heh, we crossed posts with the soft keywords. I like your idea (“except group”) better than mine (“except each”). If we want to use an existing keyword instead of a soft keyword, how
about "except in E as e:".
The disadvantage, as I see it, from a linguistic point of view, is that "except in" could be read as "excluding", but, then, so could "except each" ("excluding each of these") and "except group" ("excluding this group").
If you're thinking that, then doesn't "except KeyError" mean "everything except for KeyErrors"? I don't see the problem.
