I don't like that syntax at all. You would have to scrutinize code
even more to determine whether a statement like this was intentional
or a botched ternary operator. I'm not sure there is a need for a
function like ifset/ifsetor, but I'd MUCH rather have a clear function
name that could easily be found in the manual than mangling the
ternary operator.
