Q: Thus BOOLE is indeed useful only on rare occasions, but on those
occasions, what else would you use?
Which is probably what the *functional* BOOLE user wanted anyway.
Seriously, what are some examples that support the need for a *functional*
BOOLE? (other than general backwards compatibility, and as Moon points
out, the documented version doesn't even satisfy that.)
