13:11 <ajf> I’m mostly happy with it as-is, but given that I made int/float/numeric/string not accept NULL, I think booleans shouldn’t be accepted for them either.
13:19 → arty joined ⇐ DaveRand quit
13:49 → sonotos and lonnylot joined ⇐ dmitry and RemiFedor quit
14:41 <ircmaxell> ajf: that sounds sane (consistency wise). So it means that `int/float/numeric` only accept int/float/valid-number-string, and string only accepts string/int/float
14:43 <ajf> ircmaxell: Yeah
14:43 <ajf> Also, we don’t accept int/float/string for bool, so we shouldn’t accept bool for int/float/string
14:43 <ircmaxell> yeah, makes perfect sense
14:44 <ajf> Another point someone raised was that FALSE is a common error value alongside NULL.
14:44 <ajf> So, should I go ahead and amend the patch and RFC to do that?
14:44 <ircmaxell> I think that's the direction we're going, so that's valid
