additional checkbox values

Every once in a while I get bit when hand crafting a checkbox input
(instead of using helpers). When no value attribute is supplied some
browser send "on" as the default value, but this isn't one of the
string values that is correctly cast to true.

I vaguely recall this being a rejected patch in the past, but couldn't
locate it. If I'm imagining the rejection would this be an acceptable
addition? Rails 2.x branch or just 3?

Could you please point out to the ticket that was rejected?

As I mentioned, I only recall seeing it from quite some time back.
Have been unable to relocate it.
