I don't think there was any confusion there.  It was clear
what you meant by "X condition".  You said it meant:

  "* called from the top line [and] ** no marked files"

My point was that Dired code already deals, in various
places, with the condition of not being on a file line
and no files being marked.  That condition is easy to
deal with.

And I think that's the only problem that this bug
report needs to fix - in the case of the commands,
like `dired-do-chmod', that don't yet deal with it.

I guess you are angry or frustrated.  Sorry if I caused that.

I had already said, a day or two earlier in reply to your
request that I provide an alternative patch, that I'm OK
with whatever you decide.  I offered suggestions about this
bug, and I made clear that it's up to you and I wouldn't be
getting into the implementation details:

   Sorry; I don't have time to work on this.  I've already
   provided my suggestions - hope they help. Whatever you
   decide is fine by me.  Thx.

I consider this bug to be trivial, and I hope for a simple
fix that doesn't complicate Dired generally.  But whatever
fix you provide is OK by me.

Sorry if my suggestions made you feel like I was discounting
your efforts.  I too have already spent more time on this
bug than I can afford to.  Please fix this bug as you see
best.  And thanks for your work on Dired and other Emacs
