This means that the openerp "in"​ has nothing to do with subsets in neither
direction. This automatically means, the proposed workaround with the
complement - apart from being ugly - would not have worked.

through the operator[4:] statements...​ I think such a code could easily
cover 4 cases, left is contained in right, right is contained in left and
their corresponding negations. negations probably isn't neceseary as we
have the '!' operator on tuples... well code will show how to do it best.
