Added feature-level "then expression" support. Will not add type inference without further discussion.

Type inference is somehow expected by people coming from languages like Python.
It helps reducing the apparent verbosity of Eiffel.
I must digest them a little but from a casual Eiffeler like me looks like steps in the right direction to make Eiffel more widespread...

.... While reading Meyer's slides I've been wondering how can he expect the world to take him seriously when he has been using Comic Sans! :)

mh, from the first reading I think I like the simple extensions. About type inference I'm not yet convinced, that it is helpful to have this in the language. If it is needed, it can be done in the IDE. I'd vote for not implementing the last one...
