1653. Removing deprecated increment of bool

Section: 7.6.2.3  [expr.pre.incr]     Status: CD4     Submitter: Bjarne Stroustrup     Date: 2013-04-19

[Adopted at the October, 2015 meeting as P0002R1.]

The preincrement (7.6.2.3 [expr.pre.incr]) and postincrement (7.6.1.6 [expr.post.incr]) operators can be applied to operands of type bool, setting the operand to true, but this use is deprecated. Can it now be removed altogether?
