Now that we have started to see conditional expressions ... I would like to
see them parenthesized. The parens aren't as important as they are with
generator expressions, but ... they matter.
>From a recent checkin --
level = 0 if "absolute_import" in self.futures else -1
Mentally, I can't help parsing that as "level = 0" plus comments that turn
out to be code that triggers backracking.
When the expressions (particularly the true case) are longer, it gets even
I think that adding parentheses would help, by at least signalling that the
logic is longer than just the next (single) expression.
level = (0 if "absolute_import" in self.futures else -1)
