Wow. I vaguely recall having mumbled about keeping YesPlease as an extra synomym for 'yes' for safety against misconversions, as its use in the build/test infrastructure is so ingrained, but at the end went with the standard set of boolean without doing such extending, with the hope that soon any misconversion would be found out. This discovery of a misconversion took 3 months, which may or may not match the definition of "soon" X-<. The fix is obviously correct.
