Comment (by jaredgrubb):

 The regex comment was that this could easily be implemented in regex like
 the others since Python supports back-references.

 As for the existence vs trueness distinction, one idea I had was to borrow
 "#" from printf's "alternate format" modifier. So:
 * ":?" means if prop exists
 * ":#?" means if prop is true
 And then another idea is that you could add ":#+" as an alias for ":~"; I
 personally have trouble telling ~ and - apart in font.

 The other alternative is to just add another character: ":?" vs ":!".

 Any preferences?

 I could do this; it's a pretty easy patch.
