[tpm] Stupid question time!

I often find myself doing things like this...

my $bar = $foo if $foo;

...and I wish there were an assignment operator conditional on right-hand
truthiness. maybe...

my $bar ?= $foo; # as opposed to $bar ||= $foo;

Thoughts? Have I overlooked an existing operator? Is this just a bad idea?
