Comment (by qwerty):

 While we are dealing with inf, we might as well properly handle the
 following as well:

 {{{
 >>> allclose(inf,100)
 False
 >>> allclose(100,inf)
 True
 }}}

 I know that properly handling such cases will slow the comparisions down,
 but these really need to be taken care of.  Users should not have to check
 if elements are inf...
