what exactly are you trying to do?

instead of \newifs have you considered using toggles (see the etoolbox 
package), they can also be used without

it is rather simple

\def\tgl{00} % true
\def\tgl{01} % false

\if\tgl true \else  false \fi

then one might get past some of these problems

(I rather like the interface provided by etoolbox)
