Argh. This would be very easy to overlook. As the senior author of PEP 654 I am going to go with "except*". Since it was shown that "except group" has ambiguous edge cases the proposals have gotten worse, which to me is a good sign that we need to stop.
With async it goes *before* def, for, with. Can you put the group before the except in the same style?
try: stuff... group except : handler...
