Well, failure is going to be pretty common, so I don't want it to be
too noisy. I haven't completely figured out the proper conversion
order but I think __clr_convert__ will have to first, and then
__int__, __str__, etc. In addition, using the same idiom as __lt__ et
al. should make it at least familiar.
