  Thank you for your concern.  :)

  Note that if* is merely syntactic saccharin for cond.  You have all the
  benefits of if* without either bad style or bad taste if you use cond.

  The past is not more important than the future, despite what your culture
  has taught you.  Your future observations, conclusions, and beliefs are
  more important to you than those in your past ever will be.  The world is
  changing so fast the balance between the past and the future has shifted.
