Hi,                                                                   
                                                                      
Snip from in beam/utils.c:                                            
 * According to the Erlang Standard, types are orderered as follows:  
 *   numbers < (characters) < atoms < refs < funs < ports < pids <    
 *   tuples < [] < conses < binaries.                                 
 *                                                                    
                                                                      
But in erl_marshal cmp_array for NIL has the lowest value and not     
between tuples and conses.                                            
                                                                      
Bug ?
