    Description

      It's easy to think that Timestamp objects are comparable in the shell:

      > Timestamp(1, 9) > Timestamp(1, 8)
      true
      

      But they are not:

      > Timestamp(1, 9) > Timestamp(1, 10)
      true
      

      I don't know what the rules are for comparing Timestamps, but they're not correct. This leads to bugs like SERVER-41008. Let's either fix comparison, or make comparison operators throw an error so we remember to use timestampCmp from shell/utils.js.
