TypeDecl.isPrimitive() does not work as expected

Issue #240 open

The isPrimitive attribute returns true for class types like java.lang.Integer and java.lang.Boolean. This behavior seems counter-intuitive.

It would probably be better if isPrimitive returns true only for instances of PrimitiveType.

Currently, isPrimitive is not an inverse of the isReferenceType attribute.

Changing isPrimitive may have undesired, so it may not be safe to change it.

    Fix error in BooleanType.emitCastTo(, )

    The condition for generating a boxing operation for a boolean operand was
    incorrect due to the behaviour of the isPrimitive attribute which returns true
    for both the boxed and primitive boolean type.

    fixes #240 (bitbucket)
