Note that negation is required in the condition (an original negative
becomes positive). I don't know if any natlang does this but least one
other conlang that I've seen does something similar and IIRC the lojban
'if' is derived from 'or' + negative.
BTW, I recently noticed that my relay translation had this wrong (the 2nd
error so far).
