Implements Graded reverse lexicographic order.
VariableOrder  VariableOrder{}(v1, v2) is true if v1 < v2. 
BasisElement  A derived class of PolynomialBasisElement. 
We first compare the total degree of the PolynomialBasisElement; if there is a tie, then we use the graded reverse lexicographical order as the tie breaker.
Take monomials with variables {x, y, z} and total degree<=2 as an example, with the order x > y > z. To get the graded reverse lexicographical order, we take the following steps:
First find all the monomials using the total degree. The monomials with degree 2 are {x², y², z², xy, xz, yz}. The monomials with degree 1 are {x, y, z}, and the monomials with degree 0 is {1}. To break the tie between monomials with the same total degree, first sort them in the reverse lexicographical order, namely x < y < z. The lexicographical order compares two monomials by first comparing the exponent of the largest variable, if there is a tie then go forth to the second largest variable. Thus z² > zy >zx
y² > yx > x². Finally reverse the order as x² > xy > y² > xz > yz > z² > x y > z.
