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?
