Turns out, I'll have an easy job here: it already works like that.
${BAR:-bar} will result in "bar" whether BAR is unset or empty. The
tests I ran by hand were correct, but I managed to misinterpret them.

So long story short: shell-style defaults work like a charm, right now,
no change neccessary.
