I think it would be interesting if it could also recognise "1" and "yes" too as it can be useful in some cases. Perhaps have an option for this converter to be customised.

It would be great if we had `init?(_ text: String)` for Bool class. Because sometime when you're processing JSON/XML it can help you a lot.


Bool("true") -> true
Bool("false") -> false
Bool("TrUE") -> true
Bool(" true ") -> nil
Bool("1") -> nil
Bool("Y") -> nil
Bool("whatever") -> nil via https://bugs.swift.org/browse/SR-1282
