I find this new construct very useful and helps keeping things neat instead
of deeply nested.
However I am also concerned by the "or" keyword.
This may sound stupid but, on many keyboard the 'R' and the 'F' are very
close, making OR and OF even more similar.

I like "; else case", but before reading Vlad's post, I was about to suggest
"; other case".
