[Rd] setMethod("Logic", ...)

In V&R the "polynomial" class is explicitly specified to have no logical operators:

setMethod("Logic", signature(e1="polynomial"), function(e1,e2){stop

  I too have a class of objects for which I want to specify that Logic operators do not work, but executing


          representation = representation

          prototype      = list(x=numeric(),positive=logical())

setMethod("Logic",signature(e1="brob"), function(e1,e2)
             stop("No logic currently implemented for brob objects")


gives me

Error in setMethod("Logic", signature(e1 = "brob"), function(e1, e2) { :

        no existing definition for function 'Logic'

?Math seems to imply that there is no "Logic" group.

So, what is the correct way to specify that logical operations are not allowed for "brob" objects?
