So for the example you quoted:
print 'Search complete (%d match%s found)'%(matches,(matches==1?'':'es'))
the "a and b or c" trick won't work, since an empty string is considered
false. You would need to invert the test. Instead of:
(matches==1) and '' or 'es'
(matches!=1) and 'es' or ''
This will work properly.
