I'd like the "if" statement amended to include "elseif"; for example:
if a=b then return(a) elseif a<b return(b-a) else return(b);
Currently there's no way of doing this without placing a second "if"
statement inside a "block" which is clumsy. If there was no restriction on
the number of elseif's then this would obviate the need for a case
statement, and also fit nicely into Maxima's current syntax.
