// Support for using the Singleton<T> pattern with Objective-C objects.  A
// SingletonObjC is the same as a Singleton, except the default traits are
// appropriate for Objective-C objects.  A typical Objective-C object of type
// NSExampleType can be maintained as a singleton and accessed with:
//
//   NSExampleType* exampleSingleton = SingletonObjC<NSExampleType>::get();
//
// The first time this is used, it will create exampleSingleton as the result
// of [[NSExampleType alloc] init].  Subsequent calls will return the same
// NSExampleType* object.  The object will be released by calling
// -[NSExampleType release] when Singleton's atexit routines run
// (see singleton.h).
//
// For Objective-C objects initialized through means other than the
// no-parameter -init selector, DefaultSingletonObjCTraits may be extended
// as needed:
//
//   struct FooSingletonTraits : public DefaultSingletonObjCTraits<Foo> {
//     static Foo* New() {
//       return [[Foo alloc] initWithName:@"selecty"];
//     }
//   };
//   ...
//   Foo* widgetSingleton = SingletonObjC<Foo, FooSingletonTraits>::get();

// in a memory-managed environment when their retain counts drop to 0 by
// sending |release| messages.
