note aand works similarly, with the exception that it shorts on nil:

Wow, that's true! I don't use aand much so I didn't notice. Shorting on nil can definitely be a problem because sometimes you want to do something different; it's not very readable since "aand" suggests a boolean result; finally, my macro could be modified in different ways that diverge from the usual aand semantics (like having a special form to break from the pipeline).

Thanks for the comment.
