// The Singleton<Type, Traits, DifferentiatingType> class manages a single
// instance of Type which will be created on first use and will be destroyed at
// normal process exit). The Trait::Delete function will not be called on
// abnormal process exit.
//
// DifferentiatingType is used as a key to differentiate two different
// singletons having the same memory allocation functions but serving a
// different purpose. This is mainly used for Locks serving different purposes.
//
// Example usages: (none are preferred, they all result in the same code)
//   1. FooClass* ptr = Singleton<FooClass>::get();
//      ptr->Bar();
//   2. Singleton<FooClass>()->Bar();
//   3. Singleton<FooClass>::get()->Bar();
//
// Singleton<> has no non-static members and doesn't need to actually be
// instantiated. It does no harm to instantiate it and use it as a class member
// or at global level since it is acting as a POD type.
//
// This class is itself thread-safe. The underlying Type must of course be
// thread-safe if you want to use it concurrently. Two parameters may be tuned
// depending on the user's requirements.
//
// Glossary:
//   RAE = kRegisterAtExit
//
// On every platform, if Traits::RAE is true, the singleton will be destroyed at
// process exit. More precisely it uses base::AtExitManager which requires an
// object of this type to be instanciated. AtExitManager mimics the semantics
// of atexit() such as LIFO order but under Windows is safer to call. For more
// information see at_exit.h.
//
// If Traits::RAE is false, the singleton will not be freed at process exit,
// thus the singleton will be leaked if it is ever accessed. Traits::RAE
// shouldn't be false unless absolutely necessary. Remember that the heap where
// the object is allocated may be destroyed by the CRT anyway.
//
// If you want to ensure that your class can only exist as a singleton, make
// its constructors private, and make DefaultSingletonTraits<> a friend:
//
//   #include "base/singleton.h"
//   class FooClass {
//    public:
//     void Bar() { ... }
//    private:
//     FooClass() { ... }
//     friend struct DefaultSingletonTraits<FooClass>;
//
//     DISALLOW_EVIL_CONSTRUCTORS(FooClass);
//   };
//
// Caveats:
// (a) Every call to get(), operator->() and operator*() incurs some overhead
//     (16ns on my P4/2.8GHz) to check whether the object has already been
//     initialized.  You may wish to cache the result of get(); it will not
//     change.
//
// (b) Your factory function must never throw an exception. This class is not
//     exception-safe.
