The very first thing in the implementation of the free function opEquals is

    if (lhs is rhs) return true;

So, it most definitely shortcuts. Now, that doesn't mean that it's as
efficient, since unless it's inlined, you're calling a function that isn't
called if you use is directly, but the shortcut definitely happens.
