1. You can always do it in the query if you really want it.

True, but not always practical.

probably aren't in the target audience for psql anyway.

Really? The difference between t/f is that the vertical squiggle is flipped, THAT'S IT. Consider:

t t f f f
f t f t f

Saying that I'm not target audience for not being able to see WTF is going on above I find offending.

3. I really don't want to end up with a bunch of features of this type
for a variety of different data types.

Fine. Then let's not add it for a different variety of data types. But boolean is quite essential and it has a really small number of valid output values.
