2016-02-23 16:02:05 +0100 asked a question Why do mpmath mpf values compare strangely to Integers?

With both sage 6.8 and 7.1.beta3 on OSX 10.10.5 I get this odd result:

sage: import mpmath
sage: max(Integer(0), mpmath.mpf(-1))
sage: max(mpmath.mpf(-1), Integer(0))
sage: Integer(0) < mpmath.mpf(-1)

The maximum of 0 and -1 should be 0, although I'm not sure if it should be Integer(0) or mpf(0).

Am I missing something about how sage expects me to handle arbitrary-precision floating-point numbers?
