IMO TALES should solve this for itself by introducing an if/then/else
expression form rather than depending on Python.  If you can have a
"not:.." expression, surely you can have an "if:..:then:..:else:.."

If it was just TALES I'd agree. However I suspect that many other systems built on Python
have the same problem of allowing only Python expressions in various contexts. It seems
very likely that most of the other web templating systems have this limitation.

If this is true then, IMO, it's better to have one way to do it across all the applications built
on Python than have every app. do it differently. If I didn't believe this I would have voted
for no change to the language.
