Yep. Note that fold is really a special place in GCC - it is used from both
the frontends and the middle-end and seemingly arguing from middle-end
semantics point may well break the frontends if they (wrongly?) assume
that the (not written down) middle-end semantics do not apply, but their
I wouldn't be surprised if removing the BOOLEAN_TYPE check broke
C or C++ at least ;)
