I'm not sure that either behaviour is a good idea, mostly because it
seems to end up restricting Array contents to singular types if you
want to sort the array. Granted, 1.6.8 fails on both forms of "1"
<=> 1 with a TypeError, so this is a change, and sorted Array
contents already couldn't be variant types because of that
TypeError.

Maybe we should figure out a way to sort objects of disparate types?
(How? I donno. I've not really given it a lot of thought; I'm just
tossing the idea around.)

LocalJumpError#cause or LocalJumpError#reason sounds fine to me.
