Lua 5 will report this error if the operands don't have the same type.  This
behavior is different from the + operator.  I don't know the reason behind
this.  It does look odd that such constructions (e.g. comparing table-based
custom "types" with non-table data) don't seem possible.

Does anyone know why it was implemented like this?
