If you only want to deal with the less than or greater than operation a
cheap trick would be:

test <- function(a, b, sign) {
  foo <- (a*sign > b*sign);

might have to tweak the syntax.

The idea behind this is that
5>3: TRUE
-5>-3: FALSE (i.e. I've multiplied both sides by sign(-1))

Hope this helps,
p.s. sorry about corporate notice.
