[New-bugs-announce] [issue1717] Get rid of more refercenes to __cmp__

Guido van Rossum report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Guido van Rossum:

Should I apply this?  There are more places that reference __cmp__ in
the library.  OTOH there are some folks who would like to see __cmp__
make a come-back as a shorthand for defining 6 comparison operators, for
totally-ordered types.  (I'm still waiting for a PEP describing this
though.)  Even in that case I'm not sure that the code I'm proposing to
delete here would be useful.
