The boole function currently takes exactly three arguments, instead of an arbitrary number. Making it take an arbitrary number by the associating to the left would be wrong because the function is non-associative. However, there is fairly obvious definition that is consistent: boole takes an operation code of 2^N bits and operates on N additional integers. Thus (boole 2#01111111 a b c) is the same as (logior a b c).
