I can imagine a lot of situations where somebody would like to use
intervals as keys. However I don't really see a case where it is needed
to have another order than the lexicographic one. In particular, if the
intervals don't overlap, it can be used as a positional relation.
Could you explain what kind of order you need in your example about the
roots of a polynomial?
