BooleanCell constructor ***private** ?!?!

Why is the constructor for boolean cells private???:

    private BooleanCell(final boolean i) {
        m_boolean = i;
    }

How do I set up and initialize a boolean cell, without an acessible constructor or a factory?

(This is from the source package org.knime.core.source.2.3.4.0028950.jar), and I am running 2.3.4 with all updates)

Hello,

the BooleanCell class is not to be instantiated. Please use the singleton representing the true and false state (e.g. http://tech.knime.org/docs/api/org/knime/core/data/def/BooleanCell.html#TRUE).

Bye,

KNIME v2.4 will also have a factory method so that you don't need an if statement in your code but can rely on BooleanCell#get(boolean).

Thanks,
