On planet Melmac an "array of boolean" is a stew of cats.
In Free Pascal a Set is not an "array of boolean". You can neither
assign nor typecast them to each other.
Of course you are free to use any analogy you like to explain
Sets and arrays, but then you should not blame Free Pascal, that
your analogy does not work well.
