BTW "to bool", as you saiy, is **not an implicit conv**... it's 
more a special case that **only** happens when a condition is 
evaluated so `if` condition, `while` condition, CondExp 
condition, AssertExp, and I think that's all.

That detail is important to understand why pascal `and` works 
perfectly with both numbers and booleans ;)
