[racket] typed racket: determining subset?

I'd do this by defining one in terms of the other.

The following expression will ensure the property, though:

(lambda () (ann (values (ann (error 'fail) T)) U))

This typechecks if and only if T is a subtype of U (regardless of T
and U).  The thunk ensures that it doesn't really raise an error.
