For the information of all, when evaluating an if conditional that
contains only &&s, the whole thing is turned FALSE as soon as one
condition is reached (and the rest doesn't count).  Exceptions would

  if (GET_CLASS(ch) == CLASS_CLERIC && (align == -1000 || align == 1000))

Which would be true if their class was a cleric *and* align was set set
to -1000, or if their class was cleric *and* align was set to 1000.

  if ((GET_CLASS(ch) == CLASS_PALADIN && align == 1000) ||
      (GET_CLASS(ch) == CLASS_ANTI_PAL && align == -1000))

Which would be true if their class was paladin and align equaled 1000, or
if their class was anti-paladin and align was equal to -1000.  Paves the
way for a lot of weird 'if' statements...

  if (GET_LEVEL(ch) >= 20 && ((IS_PALADIN(ch) && align == 1000) ||
                              (IS_ANTI_PAL(ch) && align == -1000)))

Which means if their level is over or equal 20 and if they are either
a paladin with align set to 1000, or if they are an anti-paladin with
align set to -1000.

Sorry for getting into mostly basic C.
