(%i9) is(equal(%i,0));
`sign' called on an imaginary argument:
(%i10) is(equal(und,0));
`sign' called on `und'.
I claim that both of these should evaluate to false.
It seems that equal should call csign, not $sign.

Agreed, these are bugs, and these should both yield false.

Increase priority. This is a serious hindrance.

Well, two complex numbers are equal if and only if their
real and imaginary parts are equal. That is
"a + ib = c + id" if and only if "a = c" and "b = d"
If the complex number is in the polar form, they are equal
if and only if they have the same magnitude and direction,
that is
"a*%e^(%i*b) = c*%e^(%i*d)" if and only if "a = c" and "b = d"
Generally speaking, any two vectors are equal if and only if
they are equal in its components. That is
[x[1],x[2],x[3],...,x[n]] = [y[1],y[2],y[3],...y[m]]
only when
"n = m" and "x[i]=y[i]" for all 'i' between 1 and n
Otherwise, they are not equal
I hope this can help to improve Maxima
