Recur from within catch block

"It's really fucking inconvenient not being able to recur from within (catch)
expressions. This macro wraps its body in a (loop [bindings] (try ...)).
Provides a (retry & new bindings) form which is usable within (catch) blocks:
when this form is returned by the body, the body will be retried with the new
bindings."

Dear Mr. Bezos,
My sincerest apologies for cluttering your inbox, but my best friend is
an Amazon employee, and he swears that making an earnest case to you is
the surest way to shift things for the better at Amazon. Here goes.
It's Saturday evening and I feel like watching Arrow with my best
friend. Hey, it's on Amazon! How's this work? Well it says I can buy a
TV Pass for the season. What's a TV Pass?

"Backup", and hit save. It did a bunch of disk IO for a few minutes, then just
sat at 100% CPU for the last 8 hours. The "Scan Now" spinner is rotating and it
