I think this was discussed back when I first came on board years ago, and naming complexity / interface simplicity relegated it to the chopping room floor. This was probably before we even had selection of conditions in the {p,TF,T,F} style argument.

I think another complaint I had at the time was that ď\prg_generate_conditional_variant:NnnĒ is a pretty big mouthful of a command, but thatís minor :) I donít think we could come up with a shorter and better name but any ideas?
