Description

As my feature request #7359 got rejected, here a more backward-compatible approach:

In my opinion the difference between #eql? and #equal? is really unintuitive. How about making their difference more obvious by giving one of them a more accurate name?

My proposal is to alias #equal? to #identical?.

I'll write a patch, if this is acceptable.
