* @param property The property against which the comparisons are to be made.
* If the property has not been defined it, too, will be added.
*
* @param {Array} values An Array of constants where each value will be used
* to create a new comparison method (prefixed with 'is'). If the constants
* specified are <code>Strings</code>, an <code>Array</code> containing each
* constant will typically suffice. For example, passing <code>[Foo.BAR]</code>
* (where BAR equals 'Bar') would result in an <code>isBar()</code> method
* being created.
*
* To specify custom comparison method names, an <code>Object</code> of name/value
* pairs can be used where each name defines the <code>name</code> of the method
* which is to be added and the <code>value</code> is the constant evaluated by
* the method. This is useful for constants which are not <code>Strings</code>.
* For example, a type <code>DeviceVersion</code> a key <code>isIOS421</code>
* with an associated value <code>DeviceVersion.IOS_4_2_1</code> which equals
* <code>4.2.1</code> would result in an <code>isIOS421();</code> method being
* created on the <code>DeviceVersion</code> <code>prototype</code>.
