Actually my main complaint about using "end" in an expression-if
construct would be that it's misleading -- "end" sort of means "end of a
sequential list of things", whereas the proposed construct wouldn't have
a list of things at all, just a single thing.  So "end" is both
unnecessary and misleading.
