I really don't want to go that far. I already had to deal with the
bool to int conversion in exactly this way. And changing it all over
the code, was a mess. As the simple explicit cast is enough to keep
happy the VC compiler, I propose we stick with it. It's less
intrusive, impose less [unusual] things to the developers, and still
give us the benefit of allowing Open MPI to get compiled on Windows.
