If you prefer some existing keyword, -0.75, else -1.
Note: As a native speaker, since "for ... else" isn't English, I would
certainly look up the semantics before using the syntax. This is very
probably true for Japanese as well, who are far better at (consciously)
remembering English syntax than native speakers are. I don't know
about other non-natives.

-1. It's occasionally useful, and when it is, it's nice and concise.
