This tends to work poorly for most tracebacks.  As soon as you have one that contains an object with a default repr, the ID section makes each hash different.

When I did this, I settled on hashing just the qual of the exception class and the brief string (failure.getErrorMessage()) version of it.  This has a similar problem, but seems to work ok in practice.
