I was waiting that :)
A strong +1 from me (see apache vote style for more details :)
One may argue about templates, STL, and so on... but a C++ compiler
that doesn't support bool is really not a C++ compiler (hell, it's not
even a standard compliant C compiler).
And bool was used in (almost) all the compilers waaaaay before 1997.
(btw, I think that simple template use should be allowed, too, but
that's another issue).
