Description (last modified by )
We fasten the comparison code and fix the following for the Universal cyclotomic field:
sage: CIF(E(3)) Traceback (most recent call last): ... TypeError: unable to coerce to a ComplexIntervalFieldElement
Before
sage: %timeit cmp(E(3), E(5)) 1000 loops, best of 3: 1.4 ms per loop sage: %timeit cmp(E(3)+E(3)**2, E(5)+E(5)**2) 1000 loops, best of 3: 975 µs per loop
After
sage: %timeit cmp(E(3), E(5)) 1000 loops, best of 3: 241 µs per loop sage: %timeit cmp(E(3)+E(3)**2, E(5)+E(5)**2) 1000 loops, best of 3: 181 µs per loop

Even though it looks like the float lost precision, it is in fact closer to the actual value:
sage: float(1.002000) # Trailing 0's are removed 1.002 sage: x = E(7) + E(7,6) sage: x.n(1000) 1.2469796037174670610500097680084...
So LGTM.
