Helpers providing a bridge between the Python 2
__cmp__ and Python 3.
Python 2 uses methods called
__cmp__ to override object comparison behavior;

__cmp__ is replaced by rich comparison functions.
Additionally, Python 2 allows code to compare objects of different types, falling back to lexographical class-name comparisons if types are different (so instance of "int" are always less than instances of "str").
This file offers some utilities to bridge the gap between Python 2 and 3.
cmp(...): Emulate Python 2 cmp in Python 3.
total_ordering_from_cmp(...): Class decorator that fills in missing ordering methods from
