Thinking about it further, I'm pretty sure the parsing looks like:
find '?', parse next expression, parse next token. If that token is ':'
then the expression is a ternary, otherwise it's a refutable expression
But if this is limited to LHS assignables then either works since the only
things allowed are identifiers or patterns.
