I considered the short-circuit operators (-! and +!) for filter commands, but I
am not convinced of their utility.  Do you have an example of a real-life
situation that they improve?

Note also that the suggested syntax for the new operators is now being used to
specify a rule that triggers when the pattern fails to match (such as "-! */")
so if this idiom is needed it would need a new syntax (perhaps "-*" and "+*").
