Reflection is a very low level operation. At this level, we have
the following kinds of object (the list of children of traits

   - assignment (the assignment primitive is sort of like a method)
   - block
   - float
   - method
   - mirror
   - process
   - slots (all objects not covered in other categories)
   - smallInt
   - vectorish (byteVector and vector)

So the objects "true" and "false" are handled by the "slots mirror".
Since there is nothing special about them (not quite true - the
virtual machine must know about these objects for many primitives
to work) there aren't any methods like isReflecteeInteger.
