I could only see it as a pseudo-optimization of the below...

if catch_some_a:
     try:
         #stuff
     except TypeError:
         #do stuff
elif catch_some_b:
     try:
         #stuff
     except ValueError:
         #do stuff
elif catch_all:
     try:
         #stuff
     except TypeError, ValueError:
         #do stuff

But who would do this?  I have no idea.
