 You can use var_Get. But it does not solve the problem anyway.
(var_Get returning -1 for a bool looks like a bug to me)

 A mean to set the variable to "no set" need to be added to the
command line parser and the gui if you want that way.

 I find the solution of an integer with 3 states pretty clean but that
just my opinion.
