When functools.total_ordering (whether it lands in functools is open)
lands that section should be amended in the lines of the following:

"There are no implied relationships among the comparison operators. The
truth of x==y does not imply that x!=y is false. Accordingly, when
defining __eq__(), one should also define __ne__() so that the operators
will behave as expected.

However, given a class defining one or more ordering methods,
`functools.total_ordering`_ class decorator can be used to fill in the
rest. Please see the documentation of `functools.total_ordering`_ for
further details."
