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).
