You've made me feel inadequate, because my compiler only uses shortcut
evaluation when there are jumps involved (eg. inside an If conditional, but
not in an ordinary expression).
But I found that my (a|b|c) construct (equivalent to C's a?b:c) generates
code like an If statement.
So I can fix this 'problem' by turning 'a and b' into (a and b|1|0), and 'a
or b' into (a or b|1|0), either manually or letting the compile do it as you
seem to be attempting to.
It's possible that you can try something similar, if you also have an
equivalent a?b:c operator that already has short-circuit evaluation.
