I found it on my system only as
  /usr/include/c++/4.9/tr1/stdbool.h
which only does
  #include <tr1/cstdbool>
which exists as
  /usr/include/c++/4.9/tr1/cstdbool

It includes the really ugly file
  #include <bits/c++config.h>
and then again does
  #if _GLIBCXX_HAVE_STDBOOL_H
  #include <stdbool.h>
  #endif
Which gives my brain a logical endless loop.

Well, if the ABI is doomed, then i shall hurry to develop the "pragmatic"
multi-extent branch, as sketched out with Pete.

But i still have one change in statv2 on the plan:
Detecting files which are not suitable for the "pragmatic" concept. :))


Have a nice day :)
