Checking for exceptions
action `shouldThrow` selector asserts that
action throws an exception.
The precise nature of that exception is described with a
Selector is a predicate; it can simultaneously constrain the type and
value of an exception.
Predefined type-based selectors
There are predefined selectors for some standard exceptions. Each selector
const True with an appropriate type.
Combinators for defining value-based selectors
For such exceptions, combinators that construct selectors are provided. Each combinator corresponds to a constructor; it takes the same arguments, and has the same name (but starting with a lower-case letter).
