You don't need to specify this default, as the default default is "n".
"bool" will do.

You should never need to use "def_bool n" or "default n" for anything
this simple. There are more complex cases where there may be multiple
conditional "default" lines where it may be necessary, but the majority
of cases where people use these are completely unnecessary.
