I cannot remember a language with elseif* variants, and I find them quite ugly, so from an aethetical point of view I would prefer to avoid that... On the other hand having an "else if" capability makes sense (eg do something slightly different for various versions of pg), so that would suggest to stick to a simpler "if" without variants, if possible.

FTR I *strongly* disagree with this. (And if you can't remember a language that comes with them then you need to get out more. The Bourne shell, where it's spelled "elif", and Ada are two obvious examples.)
