Set comparisons

A vector.


Another vector.


How severe should the consequences of the assertion be? Either "stop", "warning", "message", or "none".


Logical. If TRUE, x and y should not be set equal.

The is_* functions return TRUE or FALSE. The assert_* functions throw an error in the event of failure.
