Raymond Hettinger <rhettinger at users.sourceforge.net> added the comment:

-1 on PyObject_RichCompareBoolEx() for 3.3 -- it is simply an invitation to shoot yourself (or others) in the foot.

I've not seen real world code using bool(a==b) or its C equivalent, so it's hard to believe that there is a use case here (unless you're trying to commit atrocities with NaN-like objects).
