Subject: [PERF] Infiniloop(?) Rapid Memory Consumption on attempting to use == with mixed-in Numeric

There's probably some good underlying reason for why this happens, but from programmers perspective, it's not at all clear what needs to be done to fix the issue, so if there's no way for us to fix it, there should be some sort of an Exception thrown: <Zoffix> m: say class {}.new but Numeric == 72 <camelia> rakudo-moar 2c95f7: OUTPUT«Memory allocation failed; could not allocate 82944 bytes␤»

There may be many more of this type of issue: <Zoffix> m: say class :: does Numeric {}.new =~= 42 <camelia> rakudo-moar c4fd9f: OUTPUT«Memory allocation failed; could not allocate 60336 bytes␤»
