To clarify for anyone who is puzzled:
The most basic equivalence = these two references
indicate the same physical bytes in memory. Equaller
than that you cannot get.
Higer level equivalence = generally means that these
two objects could be swapped without any side effects
that are visible through the external interface they present
to the world.
