I think this is a good idea. Possibly painful, but ultimately good.

I'd like to broaden the discussion a bit and also suggest a change to
if_content so that it checks if content is not blank in a part, and
if_part which would check if the part exists. I think those names
would be more consistent with their features, much like the if_url and
if_path would be.
