"unsigned long" is 32-bits on Windows, even in 64 bit.

What's wrong with comparing bit-by-bit up to the common length, then if
still equal, whichever is longer is greater?
Sure, that doesn't necessarily produce the same answer as an integral
comparison, but that's not a useful comparison for a bitset anyway.
