Would it be a correct way, of solving a shift reduce problem in
yacc/bison of the if-then-else by defining a %left precedence (the
biggest one) to the else?? that way, we are sure (we were already but
at least there will not be a warning) that in the presence of the
else, it will be immediately reduced and not shifted, thus making it
belong to the closest if.

Is this correct??
