Do you have any thoughts about what might constitute *better* in your mind no matter how vague they might be?  Mostly curious about this.  

I always have to stop and think if I encounter a chained ternary expression but never do when I encounter chained if statements.  Maybe that’s just because I encounter them pretty infrequently but IMO it seems to indicate that the search for something better is worthwhile.
