No, but I have quite a bit of luatex implemented in C, and there I
often need the boolean type, but not kpathsea. Also, not all web2c-
based tex implementations use kpathsea as-is.

For example, Fabrice had problems compiling luatex because his boolean
typedef definition did not match the one in web2c's kpathsea.

It is not a big deal, but it would be nice if all of the needed
typedefs would be defined in core web2c as well as in kpathsea.
So yes, please.

Best wishes,
