Hey, I've done that! ;-) But let me explain: it was a quick and dirty way of forcing the if to go one particular way during debugging. The zero is a no-op, but you can then easily turn it into a 1 when you want to force the condition to be true. I don't think it is much worse than commenting out some code.

Corion waves to virtualsue
[virtualsue]: I have made a post for the first time in ... years
[marto]: hey virtualsue!
Eily thought about Neko Case first, something might be wrong with my brain's wiring
[virtualsue]: I recommended dbic-migration even though I am having trouble with it this week. It might be my fault.
[ambrus]: wow! I haven't seen you here for a long time, virtualsue
virtualsue waves back
[Eily]: it would have been 2 years in 2 weeks actually. And welcome back virtualsue :)
[Corion]: I think I saw virtualsue more recently in person than online :-D
[virtualsue]: It's true that there was a bigger gap between the 2 yr old post and the one before it
