just a little nitpicking: unfortunately, your comparison functions will not
compare any Rebol values. You would have to work harder to achieve that. The
trouble is with:
2) cyclic series
Some inspiration can be found in
As to whether it is useful to have such comparison:
Some applications may need it, therefore it might be handy.
