Claudio Castellini would like bool values in config files.

I think, in conjunction with the existing SI feature request, that maybe the player project's approach would be good to adopt. Units and types in config files are translated to the internal standards, rather than requiring the config file to be expressed in them.

    Adding boolean is fine with me. Adding translation of config files into the internal representation I don't think is desirable. We tried it already on yarp1 and it was a real mess. I think the interface (methods), the config files and any other representation of a value is better stay consistent. I don't personally care about the format (SI, our own) as long as it remains consistent (and hopefully documented).
