// equality and comparison operators 
//
// == and != compare tuples elementwise
// <, >, <= and >= use lexicographical ordering
//
// Any operator between tuples of different length fails at compile time
// No dependencies between operators are assumed 
// (i.e. !(a<b)  does not imply a>=b, a!=b does not imply a==b etc.
// so any weirdnesses of elementary operators are respected).
