[cfe-dev] Is it OK to directly compare CXFile?

using the clang-c API, there is no clang_equalFiles or similar. CXFile itself 
is just a typedef of void*. In our tests, we saw that these CXFile's are 
probably interned, i.e. you get the same ptr address for equal 

So - is it safe and OK to directly compare the ptr addresses stored in a 
CXFile? If so, could you please document this? If not, also document it, and 
add a clang_equalFiles?
