Thanks for your support! 

I think parenthesis are preferred because braces are for bracketing lists of statements. Statements may or may not return values. 

Having the conditional on the inside of the parens helps to show the begging of the demux operator rather than a floating conditional which is a common complaint with the ternary operator.

Also I can't figure out if parens or curly braces are more appropriate. Does it make more sense for the expression to look like a tuple or a closure? I'm not sure.
