"The operators <, >, ==, >=, <=, and != compare the values of
two objects. The objects need not have the same type. If both
are numbers, they are converted to a common type. Otherwise,
objects of different types always compare unequal, and are
ordered consistently but arbitrarily.
(This unusual definition of comparison was used to simplify the
definition of operations like sorting and the in and not in
operators. In the future, the comparison rules for objects of
different types are likely to change.)"
