On second thought, I don't think there's enough here to warrant
putting this in the standard library. E.g. the example from BaseSet
actually strikes me as indirect: because <= is the natural operation
to provide for sets, hanging everything off __lt__ looks forced.
Maybe this could go into the Demo directory or in some example or
We'll revise this issue when we are going to introduce a standard type
or interface hierarchy (not for Python 2.3).
