Hi!

You could say the same about storing things in an int.

(int32) 32768 -> -32767

The convention and intention with my_bool is to only store 0 or 1 into
it. Any other things are 'not supported'.

I find my_bool very descriptive as I know by just looking at the
function prototype what kind of values it will return (when it's
declared with my_bool).
