-1.  "and" and "or" affect the flow of control.  It's a matter
of taste, but I feel the benefit is too small here to add
another flow-control quirk.  I like that part of the language
to be simple.

Anyway, if this *is* done, logically it should cover
"(... if ... else ...)" as well.  Same use cases.
