Hi Chris,

I like the idea.  I don't have any stake in the existing code, though.

Would if-then-else behave differently at all to or_else?

I second your suggestion to explicitly mark atomic blocks for
retry-on-failure, simply because I would hate to write a semidet goal
accidentally (although we do have determinism check scopes now).
I suggest the flag `retry_on_fail' :-)
