The code for the method is:

		public override bool Equals (object obj)
			TypeExpr tobj = obj as TypeExpr;
			if (tobj == null)
				return false;

			return Type == tobj.Type;

so, obviously, the criteria for equality is that the two TypeExpr's
types are the same. If the two types must be the same, it follows that
the hashcode of the two types must be the same. So a valid
implementation would be:

return this.Type;

Because, it follows the requirement for the Equals and GetHashcode,

a.Equals (b) ==> a.GetHashCode () == b.GetHashCode ()
