not sure how 'kosher' this is, but it's perfectly legal python.
just do something like "None = 0" at the start of any script where you 
want to do numerical comparisons on None :]

of course, you will run into problems with other modules passing you 
"None" and trying to compare it to the None in your module. still, if 
you are just trying to get some old code up and running, this may be a 
quick fix for you
