Others have pointed out, that you can use
"and" and "or" to emulate "? ... : ...".
Be careful, there are dangers, because the emulation is not faithful.

In some cases, you could use:
   ...(..., reviewed= moderated and 'on', ...)
This will define "reviewed". It will have a Python "false" value
if moderated is "false", otherwise the value 'on'.

If your function uses code like:
        "if kw.has_key('reviewed') and kw['reviewed': ..."
this will work. If the second and term is missing, if won't.


I do not know, what code ZCatalog uses. Try it out or
look into the source.
