Just gotta stress the *should*. System.identityHashCode returns an
int, technically that won't cut it for 64 bit Java.

That said if you find a real solution to this problem I'd like to know
because the reference and debug features of composite pool
implementation I submitted currently depend on hoping the
System.identityHashCode doesn't return the same value for two
different instances.

I don't like that code but I don't expect many people to use it in
production. If you expect people to often use that technique in
production I think we should keep looking.
