Liskov substitutibility would seem to suggest deriving int from bool, not the other way around. That is: If I have a program that uses bool values, I can change it so that it uses int values without affecting the behavior of the program. The reverse is not true.
Even that won't work, because of the different repr/str behavior... one reason I don't like the inheritance relationship.
I wonder if this is the circle-ellipse problem over again?
