-1, if this goes through it will be extended to all other compound  
statements over time and we'll end up with 2 or 3 ways to do every  

A much better idea would be to find a way to make all compound  
statements into expressions, future-proofing the decision and avoiding  
the redundancy between "compound statement statement" and "compound  
statement expression".
