-0 on this concept from me.  I'm not going to vigorously oppose it, but:

1. You can always do it in the query if you really want it.
2. If you're the sort of person liable to be confused by t/f, you
probably aren't in the target audience for psql anyway.
3. I really don't want to end up with a bunch of features of this type
for a variety of different data types.

But I just work here, and if others feel differently, so be it.
