It is. I had to write something similar to his Boolean module when I inherited a fucked up database that had different standards for Boolean values in different parts of the code base. Everything was stored in a blob column for extra meta-database hate.

Just because you get to work with all of the nice clean code in the world doesn't mean some people aren't stuck with the mistakes of others. Then again, my primary income stream is writing code and yours is recruitment, so it's expected I'm more likely to have to clean up messes.
