In the reference implementation, this does not help any, because it has
(define hash-by-identity hash).  If hash-by-identity were provided as a
primitive, then yes, it would make sense.  So it's just a question of
whether we can trust Scheme implementors that use the SRFI code
_partially_ to notice this particular thing.
