> If people really want to pursue further sugar here I think it would be worthwhile to explore a direction that hasn’t already been debated extensively.  That is why I suggested thinking about `if unwrap`.  That said, I really don’t think current state is too bad.  It’s definitely not worth expending community energy on this when we clearly have more important things to focus on (like completing generics and ABI).

I agree with Matthew. A marginal increase in developer convenience is, to me, not worth the additional complexity of special purpose syntax.
