So the real problem is that lambda is to hard to
spell? Somebody go tell Guido! I know the lambda-
philes (of which I shamefully admit to being a
card-carrying member, no matter how unpythonic
they are) would like this one.


P.S. Make that "ifelse". As was mentioned before,
     "iif" looks too much like "iff". :-) And
     while you're at it you might as well grab
     "switch". :-) :-)
