Well, looking back on it, I feel this was at bottom a documentation
failure.  I think that when I wrote the EquivalenceClass code, I knew
that "child" members did not have similar semantics to regular members.
But I had forgotten that when Teodor reported the MergeAppend bug,
and so misdiagnosed what I was seeing happen as being corruption of
the EC contents, when it wasn't really.  I added some documentation
around this point in the patch I committed yesterday...
