My problem is not so much unless as the problem it tries to fix - namely making doing something when a condition is false readable and clear. It does that, to an extent. But in 90% of the cases the code is for handling an error.

Marking cut and paste code as such is a great idea. The code needs some documentation anyway. It's all uncommented.

update: fixed typo
