Indeed. The inline conditionnal syntax is obviously innappropriate here.
It's just like list-comprehensions : just fine for simple use case,
definitively not appropriate when it comes to anything complex. IOW :
it's not the syntax that's unfortunate, it's the coding style that's wrong.
My 2 cents...
