Not a chance in hell.

Click "Advanced" at the bottom of the tags section. Oh yes, raw tag
entry FTW! for when you damn well know the editor is wrong.
Plus the "presets" (they're not really presets now, but property
editors) are completely configurable[1], and (once I put the pref box
in) swappable at run time.
Oh, and the oneway preset i currently have happily recognises
1=true=yes/0=false=no/reverse=-1. It's only when you set it that it
will standardise to yes/no/-1.
