Imperative conditionals with explicit assignment are really
convenient when working with state machines.

Is there a way to express them?  Maybe by making the default
assignment explicit?

The problem is that this needs local names in a way that I don't see
work other than using something like lenses.

It's probably easiest to use 'update' explicitly.

Yea the whole thing just doesn't fit well.  It's either/or.
