> I would have expected a bool parse code to insist on a boolean,

I originally had a second form ('P') that insisted on a boolean as you suggest.  But nobody could come up with a use case.  So I removed it in the final patch.  Please see this issue for the discussion.

If you have a use case for it I'd be happy to revive it and check it in.
