Oh, sorry. Just personal preference. I don't see the point of using:

(when
  single-form)

since it expands to

(if
  (progn
    single-form))

which seems like a waste of a progn to me. (Maybe the compiler optimizes
it away though, I don't actually know.)

In this case, I think I was just put in an anti-when mood by things of
the form:

(when a
  (when b
   ...))
