I'm actually not sure which of us is correct - Katie and I will be looking into it further today to compare the existing implementation, my proposal and yours to see if there's a clear winner in terms of consistent.

It may be that we end up choosing the version that pushes towards more correct behaviour, since types incorrectly returning True or False from comparisons (instead of NotImplemented) is actually a pretty common bug preventing the creation of unrelated types that interoperate cleanly with an existing type.
