```sorry, that second one should be:

Block[{q = 5, f, g}, {Module[{f =
Unevaluated[q], g}, g =
Block[{Unevaluated}, First@f]; f === g], Unevaluated[q] === q}]

(and it still produces {False, False})

also, I have a similar expression in some code, and a TracePrint on it
contains this:

Unevaluated[names["1", "0"]] === names["1", "0"]

with the _next line_ saying False

(even though Unevaluated and SameQ aren't Blocked and names isn't
Blocked, but doesn't have a value) (afaik)
