Description
There are a few problems with the current spec for comparing date/time with the Calendar methods:

  - The after() and before() methods take an Object and return false if the given Object isn't a Calendar instance. (4682471)

  - equals() documentation doesn't mention that the lenient, firstDayOfWeek, etc. are parameters for the comparison. This must be documented.

  - Calendar should support Comparable so that only the time values can be compared (without taking other parameters (lenient, firstDayOfWeek, etc.).

  - These methods shouldn't modify the state of this and given Objects.
