Also, why should we hide something useful from the Python programmer if it's there anyway ? (One thing I've always wondered about is why Python doesn't expose Py_True and Py_False through the builtin module...)
I have no idea why they are not exposed, of course. but my guess would be because there is no boolean type, there is no need for them. I myself have never needed a boolean type, "zero" or "empty" have always worked for me as a boolean false.
What are they used at the C level for?
I guess, I'll add a constructor to mx.Tools, my repository for missing builtins ;-)
Does mx.Tools offer a boolean type?
