CPython 2.7 and 3.5 have issues with the sign of zeroes even without any custom class:

>>> -(0j)       # this is -(0+0j)
>>> (-0-0j)     # but this equals to the difference between 0 and 0+0j
>>> (-0.0-0j)   # this is the difference between -0.0 and 0+0j
>>> -0j
-0j             # <- on CPython 2.7
(-0-0j)         # <- on CPython 3.5

It's unclear if the signs of the two potential zeroes in a complex number have a meaning, but the C standard considers these cases for all functions in the complex number's header.
