[Python-3000] __nonzero__ vs. __bool__

how about changing the name of __nonzero__ to __bool__?

today it looks like:
* int(x) --> x.__int__()
* long(x) --> x.__long__()
* float(x) --> x.__float__()
* str(x) --> x.__str__()

but for bool it's x.__nonzero__()

i'd guess __nonzero__ existed even before the bool type was introduced (2.2?),

but in the cleanup-old-design-issues spirit, perhaps it can be made
to the other builtin types.
