The proposed PR fixes some issues with True and False in the documentation:

* "Return true/false" is replaced with "Return ``True``/``False``" if the function actually returns a bool.

* Fixed formatting of some True and False literals (now in monospace).

* Replaced "True/False" with "true/false" if it can be not only bool.

* Replaced some 1/0 with True/False if it corresponds the code.

Very nice. I aplaud your return to the original Python terminology, of true and false as adjectives, and True and False as names for specific objects. Perlisms such as `truthy` or `that evaluates as True` simply make my head spin.

I wrote one comment, regarding the case where you have the default value mentioned. Otherwise, I think it is a very nice change.
