The issue is, what does the expression return, in the false case, if
#ifFalse: isn't there?

It may be a Smalltalk standard to return nil in that case - I have no idea.
Personally, when I'm doing something with an expression (like returning it,
or assigning it), I always make it very explicit what I (the programmer)
expect to happen in all cases...
