Heh... it's more like the standard assert(foo == bar). It just
uses a function rather than pushing a method on the entire
object hierarchy. It seems much clearer to me. The == operator
doesn't have a new meaning foisted on it, and it's clear that
the want function is not a method of whatever object it's
operating on.
