This fences out user assumptions about hashCode.
While I was at it I also did equals and toString.
The toString language is an example of applying similar
limitations. Probably it goes into too much detail; I added
it for the sake of discussion.
BTW, when designing the toString methods for MethodHandle
and MethodType we were ruthless about removing package
prefixes, and I’m glad we did it that way. Package prefixes
are noisy in toString output. I’m glad to see it going that
way with Record::toString also.
