If it can be shown that this is a pure win (that is, it improves code
for 2.3.4, but is both backwards and forwards compatible, then I don't
mind. I _do_ mind if we end up with the horror of 2.2.2's not-really-
booleans, which has resulted in FAR FAR too much code of the form:

    True, False
    True, False = 1, 0

I do not wish to see something like this again.
