I think I once proposed, or at any rate once thought of, a -gt()-
function (those not familiar with old Fortrans can think "greater than")
such that

gt(x, y) is 1 if x > y & x < . & y < . and 0 otherwise.

Similarly ge(), lt(), le() for >=, <, <=.

That sounds useful! Then each could have there own gt function set to function like R, or like SAS, or like Stata!
