> It is often useful to distinguish between synchronous and asynchronous
> exceptions. The common idiom is to run a user-supplied computation
> catching any synchronous exceptions but allowing asynchronous exceptions
> (such as user interrupt) pass through.
> base 4.7 (shipped with GHC 7.8) will have SomeAsyncException type that
> solves this problem.
> asynchronous-exceptions is a new package that serves two purposes:
> * provide compatibility with older `base` versions that lack the
>   `SomeAsyncException` type
> * define convenient functions for catching only synchronous exceptions
