Yeah, I did, but it was failing because of rounding errors. That's why I
felt I had to resort to cmp, since it allows an optional accuracy parameter.
I just got all flummoxed because my brain wanted it to return true for
equality. This is despite the fact that I've defined __cmp__ for my own
classes in the past and been bitten by the same confusion. I guess my brain
just doesn't work that way.
