Mark Levinson wonders: "Should I stand on the principle that an integer is
not boolean?"

It seems that the fields that receive only one of two possible values of
true/false, success/failure are boolean fields. Maybe just refer to the
receiving data element (field, whatever!) as boolean, and that the integers
0 and 1 are the possible values that represent failure and success,
respectively.
