Really?  It certainly seemed to me that two code objects from
different places in the source ought to compare differently... it also
lead to a real problem (coalescing them in co_consts).  I'm genuinely
curious as to what other applications comparing code objects might

(This was my patch that I didn't get around to applying myself).

  In short, just business as usual in the wacky world of floating
  point <wink>.                        -- Tim Peters, comp.lang.python
