Well, I can think of something that might be of some help:

In [18]: bit = {True:1, False:0}

In [19]: bit[True]
Out[19]: 1

In [20]: bit[False]
Out[20]: 0

In [21]: bit
Out[21]: {False: 0, True: 1}

In [22]: x = False

In [23]: bit[x]
Out[23]: 0

That might give you something to work with. Anyway, HTH,
