It goes back to the way xTalks handle values. True and false are
strings, not numbers (the constant true has value "true", and
likewise for false). This is how boolean values are reported
throughout the language, as the strings "true" or "false".
I suppose xTalks could special-case equalities by making the string
"true" equal the string "1", and "false" equal "0", but it would be
kind of opaque to scripters, I think. (Handy, but hard to understand.)
