I know this doesn't answer your question, but I always found this syntax
awful. It just doesn't fit with my understanding to have all the
expanded stuff between the <>'s. I think nesting of <> is to be avoided
where possible.

As someone else suggested, I'd like a syntax like this:

| <ifeq 0 0>
|      then-case
|   <else> (optional)
|      else-case
| </ifeq>

Not much more to type, but nontheless far more clear. I mean, if we're
breaking compability anyway, why not do it right ?

For the other problem, the one involving fumbling fingers driven by fading
grey cells, I recommend deep hypnosis and a cold shower.         -- Wietse
