Yeah, I was wondering about that too.  I'm not sure that you can make
a reasonable set of helper macros that will fix this, but if you want
to try, go for it.

BTW, just as a stylistic thing, I find "a?b:c||d" unreadable: I have
to go back to the manual every darn time to convince myself whether
that means (a?b:c)||d or a?b:(c||d).  It's better not to rely on
the reader (... or the author) having memorized C's precedence rules
in quite that much detail.  Extra parens help.
