Ah, that's not quite the example I meant, and your example isn't a correct 
demonstration for the REPL. If you want to test the == that's used in the 
Equatable conformance, you have to call a function that's generic on Equatable.

Anyway, this is the example I meant:

protocol Annoying {}
extension Annoying {
  static func ==(lhs: Self, rhs: Self) -> Bool {
    print("annoying")
    return true
  }
}
struct Foo: Equatable, Annoying {
  let x: Int
}
print(Foo(x: 5) == Foo(x: 6))

I think the correct behavior here is to call the version from Annoying, but I 
can also see how that would be surprising.
