[Gdal-dev] GDAL/Shapelib support for "Boolean" fields

I ran into trouble using Shapelib to read some SHP files today. It
turns out that Shapelib defines the following fieldtypes:
FTString = 0
FTInteger = 1
FTDouble = 2
FTInvalid = 3
However, SHP appears to actually support a "Boolean" field type as well.
ArcView lets you create such a field, and then Shapelib tells me the
boolean field is FTInvalid.
This would probably be an easy thing to add support for. Let me know if
i should take a stab at implementing it myself, or...?
