Does "break" do it in traditional try..finally..end? 
This new construct shall be no different.

That's actually why I opt for just try..finally...except..end; too - 
because an exception in the 'finally' section, if it was the outer, 
could have unpredictable consequences; with 'except' being outer,
at least your program will have a chance to still run and exit 
(more or less) gracefully.
