True, and from a user perspective xaccAccountEqual() is the API way to
test whether two account objects point to the same Account. Just
testing for acc1 == acc2 may work in some cases, and I believe that
xaccAccountEqual() does have that short-circuit in there. But users
should use the API.
This isn't C++. If it were then yes, we could have overridden the '=='
operator to do a deep-inspection compare if the pointers are different.
But because this is C we had to write our own API and ask users to use
