the default opEquals on a struct that contains only an integer member does a
bitwise comparison.  You may interpret this as "it does this because this is
how you compare integers" or you may interpret this as "it does this because
the default opEquals for structs always does bit comparison."  I think
according to the spec, the latter is the case, which is consistent with the
given behavior.

In that case, I think this should be marked as an enhancement, I don't think it
would be a trivial update.  I would mark it as such, but I don't want to step
on toes...

Incidentally, it would be a nice enhancement because it would save a lot of
boiler-plate code.

I agree, if you want bitwise comparison, use 'is'.
