No, instead of "self, float(other)" it should be "float(self), other".

    def __cmp__(self, other):
       try:
           xn, yn, p = _norm(self, other)
       except TypeError:
           xn, yn = float(self), other
       return cmp(xn, yn)

This should work with None, and any other object that a float
can be compared with.
