Because JSON has become the de facto standard for web data, it is good to
manipulate boolean in Perl.

One issue is compatibility with past expressions.

Is there any change of  the boolean expression of JSON::PP?

And JSON and YAML modules on CPAN?

 There is a little big cost to switch to boolean type, however I think the
benefits are much more.
