Swift: Is there a way to test if object cast as AnyObject conforms to Equatable?

I have an object that has keyed properties:

func value(key: String) -> AnyObject?
func setValue(value: AnyObject?, key: String)

I wish to check if the value returned from the
function with the same key from two different objects are
. Swift complains because
has a
reference and can only be used in generics. Is there a way I can check to see if the
object returned from the
function conforms to

To check protocol conformance, simply use is keyword.

But you can't do it when the protocol is using Self (note the capital S).

So you could do:

if let myValue = myObject.value(myKey) as? Equatable {
