No -1000 for this bad insane idea. Comparison is an algebraic datatype with
three outcomes: lt, eq or gt. You DON'T use an integer domain to represent
that. Why not -1337, 0 and +230439204830948320498 instead? They are equally
good I guess!

We don't need to diverge from Standard ML. We need to converge!
