I thought that:

[[ -z $ver ]] && ver="unknown (no .git/refs/heads/master)" || ver=${ver[1,7]}

is more or equally readable to:

if [[ -z $ver ]]; then
    ver="unknown (no .git/refs/heads/master)"

especially if I would format it like I would today:

[[ -z $ver ]] && \
    ver="unknown (no .git/refs/heads/master)" || \

but I'm seeing your point. This is like commenting or not the code – I
was for a long long time pro-commenting, to just drop it recently,
actually finding pleasure in writing a condensed, I could agree –
(less /un)readable code.
