It seems to me this is more a case of needing a good manifold mesh in
blender for testing purposes, not just for booleans, there are quite a
few cases where only manifold meshes are useful for testing tools.
Basically any time when you want a mesh to be used as a physical
object with an inside/outside.

Off the top of my head I cant think of a mesh that should be used
right now (maybe a manifold teapot? ugh!)
But if a not too high poly mesh can be found it'd be good.
