Or more generally, for any Y, Z:

    ((nil and Y) or false) and Z  -->  nil
    (nil and Y) or (false and Z)  -->  nil

Which is symmetrical with my earlier generalization:  For any X, Y, Z, where X ~=nil and X~=false:

    ((X or Y) and true) or Z  -->  X
    (X or Y) and (true or Z)  -->  X

Got it.  I didn't have time to grok the code generation, but offered this info in case it might help a bit.
