The thing is that I have seen "iif" expressions in some SQL variants,
meaning "immediate if", and also a lot of occurences of "IIF" in this
list lately. So, I am becoming a bit confused of what people mean ;-)

Good question!
Strictly speaking, I meant 'if and only if'... with the 'only if' part
just because if we don't add a boost exception there is nothing to add
'raise' to.... but this is a very strange way to use 'only if'
I was being motivated with a pure emphasis really, so I should have used
