Really not sure why you would write a conditional test which executes the
same code whether a condition is true or false - doesn't seem to be much
point in that.
In any case, the correct syntax would be:
[if scratch variable]
[if scratch whatever eq this]
[elsif scratch whatever eq that]
[elsif !scratch variable]
[if value something]
...hope you get the idea. Also, this is the correct syntax, but it is quite
possible that it could break depending upon conditions - functionality in
all circumstances is not guaranteed.
I know that [if] went through some re-coding in 4.8, and as a result the
use of [then] is rarely required.
