why not use a brand new selector ? the purpose of getting 1 or 0 from a
Boolean has nothing to do with an actual conversion, better it is some
kind of an encoding, si IMO neither #asBit nor #asInteger are meaningful
here. #as0or1 would do the job. and you could even implement
#as0orMinus1 besides if you like.
