[Python-ideas] One-line "try with" statement

When dealing with files it would be nice to avoid an extra block. This is
not the same as the __exit__ method because you would have to write a
function to just catch an error.
BTW, why not "with...except.."? Just like "for" and "while" loops have
"else" clauses.

    with open('foo') as f:
    except IOError:
        print('Problem with the file!')
