It seems to me that the bit of code below should report
a type inconsistency.
X-Mozilla-Status: 0009 Sep 20 2000, 12:29:43) [MSC 32 bit (Intel)] on win32.

>>> print 2 > '1'
>>> print 1 > '2'
If we replace the comparison operator by an arithmetic operator,
>>> z= 1+'1'
Traceback (innermost last):
File "<interactive input>", line 1, in ?
TypeError: number coercion failed
Which is what I would have expected.
