Won't taking VALOF out upset the BCPL community? I think we once supported 
mixed occam1/BCPL on the Atari ST and maybe the Sinclair QL.

More seriously, could occam-pi support something like the B ? E : E'
syntax of C and Java or the E if B else E' of Python 2.5? It might be an
appropriate replacement.
