I'm not sure if I understand what you mean exactly. This is only for
types, not for values: an opaque of T is equivalent to an opaque of U
if and only if T == U. The opaque types carry a name string with them,
e.g., "md5," or "hyper-log-log," which translates T == U into name(T)
== name(U).

Maybe you're more concerned about the values? I haven't implemented
that part yet.
