I think being able to catch exception with ABCs is esssentially useless. The originally stated "usecase" can be simply solved by putting classes into a tuple and putting that in the except clause.

In general, the whole abc machinary causes lots of code which expects instance and subclass checks to be side-effect free to be able to execute arbitrary code, which creates messes.
