haxr representation of Booleans

In haxr-20060626, is the representation of booleans correct?

I read here http://www.xmlrpc.com/spec
that True  is  <boolean>1</boolean>

This is what e.g. the Python xml rpc library does.

But haxr seems to generate <bool>true</bool>
which would be false on both accounts (name and value).

The obvious patch would be to  Network/XmlRpc/Internals.hs :
instance Show Type, instance Read Type, and showBool?
( readBool seems OK ) ( are there any non-obvious other places? )

Best regards,
