Probably for good reasons, though, that don't necessarily apply to general containers / other objects.

I can see the possible value for strings and bytes, where filtering on a particular value might involve a good number of `s == s` comparisons (especially given string interning). Similarly, I could believe that small integer caching means that `0 == 0` or `1 == 1` comparisons happen often enough to make the 'is' optimisation worth it. I'm a bit bemused by the slice case, though.
