I'm not trying to re-open this debate, honestly, but I just have to say
that I find it interesting that you think heading towards something like
"configure" is desirable, just to avoid having a test-for-value.
Personally, I find "configure" to be one of the yuckiest mangled mess of
spaghetti-ed crud I've ever run into (and I've run into a considerable
amount of mangled crud over the years, so that's saying quite a lot).
