Maybe because the PHP folks don't care so much? I don't know. Already
discussed this one on IRC but there's not so much love for fixing this
issue, as far as i can see.
Either i got: "MySQL does this right in returning 0/1, so we don't
care" or i got "other drivers fixed this problem, use this one".

Yes, but i will loose 't', 'true', 'f' and 'false', the usual input
values in PostgreSQL beside '0' and '1'. It's not that the people don't
use true/false, they use this a lot. But they expect boolean variable
in PHP working like a bolean column in PG ... without casts, without
extra workarounds in the code.
