I meant something even less in-depth. Your message says only "on
comparison", and I did not even know what "this" in your sentence above
would mean until I followed the link.

  There are arguments for writing a conditional as "a < b" rather than
  "b > a", or vice versa. Let's give guidance on which we prefer.

Not a big deal, but I think it is easy when you have just written the
patch to forget that a reviewer or a reader of "git log" six months have
no has no context at all.
