Creative, Ben, creative.

I tried it out and, while it of course works perfectly well, it is slower
than the old fashioned if-then logic.  And since I'm concentrating on
optimizations right now, the old way wins!


By the way, found out that

if x == nil then

Is pretty significantly slower than:

if not x then

Makes some sense if'n you think on it, but interesting t'know! :)
