Ah, fair enough.  I've been carefully recording the propositions, but
not who suggested them (mostly because many of the forms are suggested
independently and so proper and fair credit can be problematic).  If
Sean was indeed the one that suggested the when/else syntax alternate to
the initial if/else proposition, then all I've said is redundant and I
hereby retract it :-).
