I think there is room in the platform for this functionality. Even if
this is mostly used in tests, code used in tests is code too :-)
I think Objects is a better home for deepEquals(Object, Object) than
Arrays since the arguments are not arrays and since it is a sibling
method to equals(Object, Object).
