GCC tends to require the exact opposite in almost all cases, so it's out
of habit. Especially since svn_boolean_type isn't a real boolean type,
you'd want to know if it accidently took on some non-TRUE/non-FALSE value
(I was raised in the "if you simulate boolean with int or char, make sure
you compare it against true or false" school :P)
However, i'll remember not to do it in the future. It certainly seems odd
to me.

I sent this email roughly 4 hours beforehand. It's possible my mail
didn't make it to my mail server until i reconnected, but it didn't appear
to be sitting in my outbox
