For IronPython we wrote a set of tests which go through and define
the various operator methods in all sorts of combinations on both
new-style and old-style classes as well as subclasses of those classes
and then do the comparisons w/ logging.
We've got this for both comparisons and the normal binary operators. We've
also done it in other areas such as throwing exceptions and other
complicated areas. But having the the coercion rules documented still
helped a lot (although my recollection is they were only about 95% right).
