Does this example work for you?
py> (17.1).hex == (17.1).hex
py> a = 17.1
py> b = 17.1
py> a.hex == b.hex
I know why it happens -- at the REPL, the interpreter uses the same
object for both 17.1 instances when they're part of the same statement,
but not when they're on separate lines. I just don't know whether this
is desirable or not.
