Please put that work on hold for a while.
We are merging m101 and there was a cws that did a lot of work with
regards to BOOL/USHORT and other legacy type.
If you commit change on that topic now, they will create conflict when
we merge the result of the integration of DEV300_m101 back into

Now with regard to your question:
the intent is to use sal_Bool were it has uno-facing interfaces (for
binary compat)
and bool everywhere else.

sadlly the removetooltype01 cws converted every BOOL into sal_Bool. so
the one that could have been really bool will be harder to find...
