Dar, your post really caught my attention because that was THE reason 
I checked the list today--I was going to ask if anyone had been using 
this (and what are official plans for the ? character, if any).

Lately I've been using:

function ? x,a,b
  if x then
   return a
   return b
  end if
end function

This is really helping in the project I'm working on.

I was trying to think of a regular name for the function, but didn't 
find one I liked so I'm using the ? for the time being, which looks 
pretty clear in script.
