Catching up on responses, while adding operators for numerical types
would certainly improve the readability of numerical code using
non-primitive types, for Project Coin and JDK 7, I think efforts in this
area should focus on getting  and = for collection-like types since
they are much more often used than numerical types in Java programming.
