But that doesn't even make sense grammatically!

The closest thing I can find is in the Microsoft Manual of Style for
Technical Publications, it's the if/when/whether thing. I know that
doesn't help.

Surely the fact that the mind instinctively shrinks in horror from the
sentence structure he's proposing should count for something though,
shouldn't it?
