No, we need fully equal hash keys, else the code won't visit the heap.

I guess one thing we could do for testing purposes is lobotomize one of
the datatype-specific hash functions.  For instance, make int8_hash
return the input mod 2^32, ignoring the upper bytes.  Then it'd be easy
to compute different int8s that hash to the same thing.
