If your code is catching an exception generated by an assert statement, your code is using assert incorrectly.  There is never any reason, as far as I can see, to catch an assert outside of a testing framework, and in a testing framework you definitely want to be catching an AssertionError when you are trying to catch an assert failing.  Making it some other error would just confuse the testing framework.
