in reply to Burned by precedence rules

My rule of thumb is to always use && and friends in expressions, and "and" and friends for flow control.

That works well with the precedence rules, and it makes the intention explicit as to what's going on.

But I also have a rule of thumb to use parens where that makes things more clear.
