# Would it be nice to have support for more than one resolver per
# class?  In the meanwhile, they could collude using a dispatch
# object.

# Do you need access to the actual resolver?

# Resolvers get the sequence because they may do a per-object lookup.

# Could cache search results for better performance.


# Dictionary which creates dictionary elements, so lookups never fail.
# The new elements are always dictionaries.
