I now have benchmarked SymPy 0.7.3, which was released
on July 13, 2013. See the release notes [1].
An implementation for SymPy can be found at github [2].
The results are listed at [3].

No. This is just what I observed. I think it is a nice illustration
of what is equal and what not in this context (real line/complex).

Ah ok, thanks for the clarification.

Hm, my Russian is a little bit rosty, Genosse Martin!
