Apparently not.

I have also just realised that equating is a bad name for this
function. To equate x and y does not mean to check whether they are
equal, but to treat them as equal, and that's not at all what the
function does. A better name might be equalityOn, as in
groupBy (equalityOn length). Or perhaps equalityOf.

In light of the above points I suggest that someone else creates a new
proposal for equating/equalityOn/whatever, so that it can be discussed
