Thanks Steven, this is great!

so -- when all this started, I think one of the use cases was to clean up this really common idiom:

self.an_arg = the_default if an_arg is None else an_arg

so would that be:

self.an_arg = the_default ?? an_arg

That would be nice.

Though the fact that I'm still not sure if that's correct makes me think this is not so intuitive!
