It makes no sense to convert an IO Bool to a Bool. If something
has type IO Bool that means it is an action which will get a
Bool from the outside world. It cannot be converted into a Bool.

If you want to use the action to get a Bool from the outside world
you should invoke the action in somewhere in the IO part of your code,
like this..

	do ...
	   boolVal <- ioBoolAction
