Please send it your V3 then :-)

It seems default to off is the right thing to do.

The reason to use bits_in_xxxx is to allow sparse application to over write
the size of int etc. If you don't like the bits_in_char here. You can introduce
bits_in_bool and set that to sizeof(Bool)*8 by default. That way you don't
hard code it.

Maybe a separate patch.

Waiting for your V3.
