Sounds interesting in theory, but do you have actual use cases? And do you think that the potential inefficiency is worth it?

Feature #13606: Enumerator equality and comparison

----------------------------------------
In Ruby, most objects are compared by value. What do you think about `Enumerator`s following the same pattern? I think this would greatly increase the expressiveness of Ruby.

Proposal:

Two `Enumerator`s should be considered equal (`==`) if they yield the same number of elements and these elements are equal (`==`).
If both of the `Enumerator`s are infinite, the equality operator never terminates.
`<=>` should be handled similarly.
