+1, besides: if, after 2 days of support in Flickr, not everything
already works at 100%, that's just a matter of time: they will be able
to look not just on yes/no but on 1/0 and true/false within short time
- like everyone else has to.

The presets already have been unified on yes/no, and nobody stops you
from substituting true/false to yes/no on other occurances.

Cheers,
Martin
