And there's a similar problem with the current assert;  it always
evaluates the message, which might involve a costly calculation that
by definition only has to be evaluated under exceptional

assertF(condition,\(costly result))

Naturally, any 'short cut' can lead to Perl-ism, but there the answer
is not restricting the language, but encouraging good style. I know
people get overexcited with new features but common sense prevails -
Bjarne Stroustrup gave that advice about C++, don't try to use it all
at once.
