>>> OtherNamespace.Y == Y

Oops. The problem is PyClass.__cmp__.

We definitely want == (and !=) to be based on object identity, but it's not obvious what < should be. We can't have a<b and b<a both false and yet not have a==b which would be so if we still based it on name. If I've understood CPython correctly it compares by memory address.

Not sure this is a showstopper for 2.7.2 but leaving it so marked.
