Sorry, I guess I didn't introduce myself properly. Holger Krekel gave me an 
account on codespeak after we had a number on discussions about the 
implemention on complex objects in pypy. I'm sorry if I have done the wrong 
thing! Apart from the __r...__ methods the problem was that complex objects 
appearing in the consts section of the bytecode were being wrapped as 
cpythonobjects (as they were at the time) rather than producing instances of 
the class in __builtin__module.py. This was producing lots of weird effects
( 1+2j == complex(1, 2) => False ). Now I am not sure what the fix should have 

Sorry if I have caused any confusion. I won't commit anything again until I 
have talked it over more fully!
