    typedef bool int;

    And then happily use if(EXPR) and if(!EXPR) instead of if(EXPR == TRUE) or
    if(EXPR == FALSE). :-)

    But typedeffing it to int (or unsigned char, if someone likes that
    for space optimization) does not "catch overflows" (see another lkml
    mail from me) as _Bool would.
