Oh I see. Yes, this was indeed too clever for me (ESL and never read Freege in 
English). I see we use `iff` in similar contexts in other places in the code 
base.

Looking at the link you gave this appears to be pretty specialized jargon, and 
I feel it might be a good idea to expand this to e.g., `if and only if`, if 
*not only* for the reason that would use a form clearly phonetically different.

Dropping this for now.
