It seems you are making your life very difficult by trying
to do more things in C++ than necessary.
When you design a system that combines Eclipse code with C++
code, choose the C++ bits (the external predicates) such that
they have simple types and modes (+ or -). 

Having said that, the comparison operator you mention probably
makes sense. I'm just afraid that you are heading into the
direction of writing complete Eclipse programs in C++, and
this is just not what the C++ interface was made for.
