Can you add some regression tests, please?
The patch treats any non-zero value as "true". Is that the behavior we
want, or should we only allow "1" as an integer representation of
"true"? (I'm not sure myself, I just don't think copying C here is
necessarily the best guide.)
The patch changes the system catalog; it probably ought to also bump the
catalog version number. That also means this probably isn't 8.0
material, unless we make an unrelated system catalog change in a future
beta (... and even then, I'm not sure if I'd cal it a bug fix).
