EqualityBy<E, F> class

Equality of objects based on derived values.

For example, given the class:

abstract class Employee {
  int get employmentId;
}

The following Equality considers employees with the same IDs to be equal:

new EqualityBy((Employee e) => e.employmentId);

It's also possible to pass an additional equality instance that should be used to compare the value itself.
