My only problem with it is that it's called Bool, while every other
programming language on Earth calls it Boolean. (Or at least, the
languages that *have* a name for it...)
But I'm far more perturbed by names like Eq, Ord, Num, Ix (??), and so
on. The worst thing about C is the unecessary abbriviations; let's not
copy them, eh?
