As it doesn't cost anything to define the identity as `eq?`, please do
this. Hash tables with eq? instead of eqv? are usually simpler (and
faster) because they can simply use the object's address as the hash
function (and do not have to do type checks first).

Scheme has eq? exactly for these purposes, so we shouldn't ignore it.
