The choice between the verbose and concise forms of conditional expressions was veryclose. I would not object to including bothforms in the language.  There is a precedent.Algol 68 had both verbose and concise formsof conditional expressions.  The extraeffort needed to implement two syntacticforms instead of one is small.  I would useonly the concise form, but I would not havetrouble reading codes that used either form.
