Oh, I forgot my overall opinion. I guess it's positive. Yes, even 
now you can make your own object to accomplish mostly the same 
and yes, afterthought additions like this do make the object tree 
to look ugly. But the real value of this DIP is that we're going 
to have a standard "better object" instead of a dozen different 
ones in DUB packages.

Another opinion would have been to make a new object that 
inherits the old one, instead of vice-versa. But this option 
makes it possible to statically reject `opCmp` invocations, as 
opposed to throwing an exception at runtime. And we also get to 
kill the mandatory monitor without needing to break code.
