You will need to let the user supply (hash obj) function to mate with
(compare? obj1 obj2). If you hash pointers and compare with string
contents, the hash table not work. (Apologies if this is obvious).

Providing a c-written string hash & compare functions, both case
sensitive and insensitive, would probably aid performance.
