I'm not sure I understand what you are trying to say, make vector of
what, the distinct objects? Then you can't do that as a vector literal
anyway. Anyway if vectors are immutable, as I believe they are, it
doesn't really harm to make them eq?

If you want distinctness and mutability, you can always call the vector
