What about making it an inline function, which would require evaluation of arguments:

	static __always_inline bool BITWISE_BOOLEAN_OR(bool a, bool b)
	{
	    return a || b; // Safe here, because arguments have been evaluated
	}

Suggesting that because I'm always nervous about casts in macros hiding something that the type  system would otherwise catch.
