Description

The behavior of MathUtility::canBeInterpretedAsInteger() is inconsistent:

var_dump(MathUtility::canBeInterpretedAsInteger(true)); // true
var_dump(MathUtility::canBeInterpretedAsInteger(false)); // false

Assuming that the common true = 1, false = 0 logic applies, the behavior should be fixed to accept both boolean values. Both can be coerced into integers and thus interpreted a such:

var_dump(MathUtility::canBeInterpretedAsInteger(true)); // true
var_dump(MathUtility::canBeInterpretedAsInteger(false)); // true

Alternatively both boolean values should be rejected for consistency:

var_dump(MathUtility::canBeInterpretedAsInteger(true)); // false
var_dump(MathUtility::canBeInterpretedAsInteger(false)); // false
