Overriding the == operator, like in Java/Lua/Python/whatever.

Unfortunately, there's no "real" way to do this as of yet, short of abusing ToPrimitive in certain cases, far from ideal.

I'm sure someone must have proposed it at some point, but perhaps not. In the mean time, it might be a nice feature of a compile-to-js language like coffeescript or typescript to experiment with
