I'm having fun thinking about the possibilities of these.

"could" could be a keyword if we had a magical Nondeterministic  
Turing Machine. You could have a "could" block (with a suite)  
followed by at least one (but unlimited) "else" blocks. And when that  
code was encountered, it would automatically choose the right one. :P
