I think the logic breaks down with multiple inheritance. If you make C(A, B), then you can say C > A and C > B, but then you can't say A > B or A < B which breaks sorting.

If you want to know if a B inherits from Base, then I think `Base in B.mro()` will cover that just as succinctly. And if you need to know position you can compare indexes into the MRO.

Let's assume you have this model:

class Base:

class A(Base):

class B(Base):

class C(A):

While we can do `A == B`, or `B == C` or `B == B`, I would expect to be able to compare like this as well: `A >= B (if B is subclass or itself of A)`, or `B <= C (if B is a subclass or itself of C)`

Because, since == means equality check. With the same logic, a class wraps another class is actually greater than this class from its type.
