I almost hesitate to suggest exposing it as a feature, but that
may be the right way to go.  Apps depending on "==" and "!=" for
fast comparisons could just reject parsers that don't do it, and
others wouldn't care.  I can't see any parser bothering to make
that feature state mutable -- the cost is writing the code, not
running it.
