We do, although I can't provide one now. I just remember this being discussed in bug review.

I think that Dave's rule is best here, even if it meant that we couldn't check it automatically. But I think that we can try - just complain each time true or false is passed into a function. That may prove to be too chatty though.

There is a horrible failure case - if the comment is wrong (or gets wrong after a refactoring made elsewhere), it gets much worse than an unannotated boolean argument.
