 4deferred class SINGLETON
 5   --
 6   -- Implementation of the "Singleton" design pattern. The singleton pattern is a property of a type
 7   -- (yes TYPE, not class) to have at most one single object created at runtime for the corresponding type.
 8   --
 9   -- Usage: insert SINGLETON, that's all.
10   --
11   -- For examples, look at the tools cluster of Liberty Eiffel.
12   --
13   -- WARNING: double-check if the object is really a singleton in the conceptual sense.
14   --          The singleton pattern is often used in wrong place. See for example:
