There are circumstances, for example in unit testing, when it might be useful to check if two range objects describe the same range. Currently, this can't be done using the '==' operator:
>>> range(5) == range(5) False
Would comparing the repr of each one work?
r1 = range(5) r2 = range(5) r1 == r2
('range(0, 5)', 'range(0, 5)')
repr(r1) == repr(r2)
