<AWT Dev>  Review request: new macro for conversion to jboolean

Definitely a useful macro.
I too would prefer a name like TO_JBOOLEAN since it reveals the result type. Also all uppercase to identify it as a macro. If we are paranoid and want to reduce the chance of a name collision then JNU_TO_JBOOLEAN perhaps.
I would also define the macro as:
#define JNU_TO_JBOOLEAN(obj) (jboolean) ((obj) ? JNI_TRUE : JNI_FALSE)
so that the type of the result is explicit. Unfortunately jni.h doesn't define JNI_TRUE or false with a cast to jboolean as they probably should.
