> The current implementation of {{EqualsBuilder.reflectionEquals()}} uses object equality
to test reference fields found in the class. It may be helpful to offer a method that recursively
builds {{.equals()}} methods for each field and uses that to perform the comparison.
> This functionality could be further extended by accepting a list of classes to include/exclude.
Classes that are excluded would use the normal object equality.
