shouldThrow should provide a reference to the caught exception

See original GitHub issue

At the moment it is only possible to test whether an exception of a certain was thrown:

shouldThrow<IllegalAccessException> {
  // code in here that you expect to throw a IllegalAccessException

But sometimes it is necessary to test some details of the exception like the message. This could be done by provider an overloaded shouldThrow method, which would provide a reference to the exception.

shouldThrow<IllegalAccessException> { exception ->
  // code in here that you expect to throw a IllegalAccessException
  exception.message should start with "Something went wrong"
