I would propose to name it Object.equals() as opposed to the unnecessary short eq(), which does not seem right next to unnecessarily verbose function names such as Object.getOwnPropertyDescriptor()

However, it is relevant to several other strawmen that are likely to advance -- hasCode, Maps and Sets. Also, its absence repeatedly bites me. I often accidentally code === when I mean Object.eq because it's so hard to remember when ==='s brokenness matters. Nevertheless, I am still ambivalent about adding it as standard equipment. Opinions?
