I think I'm -1 on this.

This saves two lines, but makes the code less explicit, it can't be used for try/except/else or try/except/except, it requires an extra import, the implementation is simple enough that it doesn't necessary need to be in the stdlib, it might encourage bad style, and it's slower.

Some of these downsides are indeed somewhat weak, but the upside of saving two lines is quite weak too IMHO.
