Then separate it into two decisions per voter:

1. Pro/Con any form of if-then-else expression
2. Approval voting of proposed alterntives

This would let me express the opinion that I am against any change, but 
if more people are in favor of some kind of in-the-else expression the 
form "(if COND: EXPR1 else: EXPR2)" is the one I find most acceptable.
