 * A factory for objects from classes that share a common base class,
 * have identical single-argument constructors, can be identified by
 * URI, and that can register their existence with the factory (so
 * that the factory does not have to know about all buildable
 * classes).
 * ** How to use these classes **
 * Given a base class A with many subclasses B, C, D, etc, all of
 * which need to be passed parameters class P in their constructor:
 *  -- in a header associated with A,
 *     - Create a template class ABuilder<T> which inherits from
 *       ConcreteThingBuilder<T, A, P>.  This is your class which will
 *       be specialised to provide a builder for each subclass of A.
 *       Its constructor must accept a QUrl containing the URI that
 *       identifies the class of object being built, which is passed
 *       to the parent class's constructor.  Optionally, it may also
 *       accept and pass to the parent class a QStringList of "tags",
 *       which are strings used to identify the sorts of facility this
 *       builder's object supports -- for example, file extensions or
 *       MIME types that the object can parse.  If two builders
 *       register support for the same tag, only the first to register
 *       will be used (note that which one this is may depend on
 *       static object construction ordering, so it's generally better
 *       if tags are unique to a builder).
 *     - You may also wish to typedef ThingFactory<A, P> to something
 *       like AFactory, for convenience.
 *  -- in a .cpp file associated with each of B, C, D etc,
 *     - Define a static variable of class ABuilder<B>, ABuilder<C>,
 *       ABuilder<D>, etc, passing the class's identifying URI and
 *       optional supported tag list to its constructor.  (If you
 *       like, this could be a static member of some class.)
 * You can then do the following:
 *  -- call AFactory::getInstance()->getURIs() to retrieve a list of
 *     all registered URIs for this factory.
 *  -- call AFactory::getInstance()->create(uri, parameters), where
 *     parameters is an object of type P, to construct a new object
 *     whose class is that associated with the URI uri.
 *  -- call AFactory::getInstance()->getURIFor(tag), where tag is a
 *     QString corresponding to one of the tags supported by some
 *     builder, to obtain the URI of the first builder to have
 *     registered its support for the given tag.
 *  -- call AFactory::getInstance()->createFor(tag, parameters), where
 *     tag is a QString corresponding to one of the tags supported by
 *     some builder and parameters is an object of type P, to
 *     construct a new object whose class is that built by the first
 *     builder to have registered its support for the given tag.
