ok, will do.
I got confused for while, first because I just knew I couldn't overload ?:
then when I got some self doubts and went standard searching I discovered
that I might be able to specialize operator?(bool a,T b ,T c) then I
realized I needed the expression stored in "a" and not the bool result, so
I'm back to making a function. But I did learn some dark corners of C++ on
the way. Thanks for the adventure.
