//
// The AbstractTypeUser class is an interface to be implemented by classes who
// could possible use an abstract type.  Abstract types are denoted by the
// isAbstract flag set to true in the Type class.  These are classes that
// contain an Opaque type in their structure somehow.
//
// Classes must implement this interface so that they may be notified when an
// abstract type is resolved.  Abstract types may be resolved into more concrete
// types through: linking, parsing, and bytecode reading.  When this happens,
// all of the users of the type must be updated to reference the new, more
// concrete type.  They are notified through the AbstractTypeUser interface.
//
// In addition to this, AbstractTypeUsers must keep the use list of the
// potentially abstract type that they reference up-to-date.  To do this in a
// nice, transparent way, the PATypeHandle class is used to hold "Potentially
// Abstract Types", and keep the use list of the abstract types up-to-date.
