I'm kind of rambling here since I'm not sure how to formulate what I'm trying to say. Is there an interpretation of quantum mechanics that uses topos theory? As in is there a way to fix some of the logical paradoxes of QM interpretations, by using a many valued logic system?

Chris Isham has been a big proponent of this. For a recent review (not by Isham), see http://arxiv.org/abs/1106.5660
Since they first started making noises about this, I've been wondering whether there's anything of genuinely physics-relevant substance in this, or is it just maths and reformulation? Have you (or anyone else) formed an opinion about that?
