New submission from Manuel Krebber:

I would really like there to be comparison operators for collection.Counter similar to the ones for sets. While you can now use minus to some degree for that comparison, it is very inefficient. I have attached an implementation of __ge__ and __le__ as a patch. I could also provide the necessary additions to the documentation, if that is desired.
