Hello all,

   I'm new to Python, but find its exception handling mechanism much
more powerful than comparable languages; but a question was put to me
that being new I can't come up with a very articulate answer. A
colleague asked why in an exception handling mechanism you'd want the
ELSE block to be executed if you don't throw an exception as opposed to
a FINALLY block. Anyone used this feature in practice? Thanks in
advance for your input, -- Will
