    The exprs are evaluated and, if no exceptions occur, the value of the last
    is returned. If an exception occurs and catch clauses are provided, each is
    examined in turn and the first for which the thrown exception is an instance
    of the named class is considered a matching catch clause. If there is a
    matching catch clause, its exprs are evaluated in a context in which name is
    bound to the thrown exception, and the value of the last is the return value
    of the function. If there is no matching catch clause, the exception
    propagates out of the function. Before returning, normally or abnormally,
    any finally exprs will be evaluated for their side effects. See
    http://clojure.org/special_forms for more information.
