Hash function might be a valid purpose, but I often find that there are
specific members that you want to exclude from equality/hash for various
reasons. And hash function implementation should be tightly coupled to
the structure definition anyway, so there's less reason to abstract it away.
I don't consider this library suitable for (de)serialization purposes
since it provides no access to the member name.
