Sorry to go off on a tangent, but in my code I often have stuff like 
this at the start of functions:

     tracks = something if tracks is None else tracks

or, in the case where I don't intend for the function to be passed 
non-default Falsey values:

     tracks = tracks or something

Is there any reason why the two-line version that avoids the ternary 
operator should be preferred to the above?
