Some of the background on pep-308.html sounds _more_ than familiar...

"There have been endless tedious discussions of syntax .."

"Candidates included C's cond ? true_v : false_v, if cond then true_v else false_v, and 16 other variations." (16!)

"Guido van Rossum eventually chose a surprising syntax:

x = true_value if condition else false_value"

I am _NOT_ suggesting Lua to do the same. But bringing this up, since it does seem relevant. And weird. ;)
