       This class represents a base class for any record in a Prophet database.


   new  { handle => Prophet::Replica, type => $type }
       Instantiates a new, empty Prophet::Record of type $type.

       Returns a sorted list of the names of the record's declared properties.  Declared
       properties are always validated even if the user provides no value for that prop. This can
       be used for such things as requiring records to have certain props in order to be created,
       for example.

       Returns the record's type.

   register_reference $class, $accessor, $foreign_class, @args
       Registers a reference to a foreign class to this record. The foreign class must be of type
       Prophet::Collection or Prophet::Record, or else a fatal error is triggered.

   register_collection_reference $accessor, $collection_class, by => $key_in_model
       Registers and creates an accessor in the current class to the associated collection
       $collection_class, which refers to the current class by $key_in_model in the model class
       of $collection_class.

   register_record_reference $accessor, $record_class, by => $key_in_model
       Registers and creates an accessor in the current class to the associated record
       $record_class, which refers to the current class by $key_in_model in the model class of

   create { props => { %hash_of_kv_pairs } }
       Creates a new Prophet database record in your database. Sets the record's properties to
       the keys and values passed in.

       Automatically canonicalizes and then validates the props.

       Upon successful creation, returns the new record's "uuid".  In case of failure, returns

   load { uuid => $UUID } or { luid => $UUID }
       Given a UUID or LUID, look up the LUID or UUID (the opposite of what was given) in the
       database. Set this record's LUID and UUID attributes, and return the LUID or UUID
       (whichever wasn't given in the method call).

       Returns undef if the record doesn't exist in the database.

   set_prop { name => $name, value => $value }
       Updates the current record to set an individual property called $name to $value

       This is a convenience method around "set_props".

   set_props { props => { key1 => val1, key2 => val2} }
       Updates the current record to set all the keys contained in the "props" parameter to their
       associated values.  Automatically canonicalizes and validates the props in question.

       In case of failure, returns false.

       On success, returns true.

       Returns a hash of this record's properties as currently set in the database.

       When called on a loaded record, returns true if the record exists and false if it does

   prop $name
       Returns the current value of the property $name for this record.  (This is a convenience
       method wrapped around "get_props").

   delete_prop { name => $name }
       Deletes the current value for the property $name.  (This is currently equivalent to
       setting the prop to ''.)

       Deletes this record from the database. (Note that it does _not_ purge historical versions
       of the record)

   changesets { limit => $int }
       Returns an ordered list of changeset objects for all changesets containing changes to the
       record specified by this record object.

       Note that changesets may include changes to other records.

       If a limit is specified, this routine will only return that many changesets, starting from
       the changeset containing the record's creation.

       Returns an ordered list of all the change objects that represent changes to the record
       specified by this record object.

   uniq @list
       The "List::MoreUtils::uniq" function (taken from version 0.21).

       Returns a new list by stripping duplicate values in @list. The order of elements in the
       returned list is the same as in @list. In scalar context, returns the number of unique
       elements in @list.

           my @x = uniq 1, 1, 2, 2, 3, 5, 3, 4; # returns 1 2 3 5 4
           my $x = uniq 1, 1, 2, 2, 3, 5, 3, 4; # returns 5

   validate_props $propsref
       Takes a reference to a props hash and validates each prop in the hash or in the
       "PROPERTIES" attribute that has a validation routine ("validate_prop_$prop").

       Dies if any prop fails validation. Returns true on success. Returns false if any prop is
       not allowable (prop name fails validation).

       A hook to allow forcing users to only use certain prop names.

       Currently just returns true for all inputs.

   canonicalize_props $propsref
       Takes a hashref to a props hash and canonicalizes each one if a "canonicalize_prop_$prop"
       routine is available.

       Returns true on completion.

   default_props $props_ref
       Takes a reference to a hash of props and looks up the defaults for those props, if they
       exist (by way of "default_prop_$prop" routines). Sets the values of the props in the hash
       to the defaults.

       Default the creator of every record to the changeset_creator (usually the current user's
       email address.)

       Default the original_replica of every record to the replica's uuid.

   validate_prop_from_recommended_values 'prop', $argsref
       Checks to see if the given property has a valid value and returns true if so.  If not,
       adds an error message to $argsref->{errors}{prop} and returns false.

   recommended_values_for_prop 'prop'
       Given a record property, return an array of the values that should usually be associated
       with this property.

       If a property doesn't have a specific range of values, undef is returned.

       This is mainly intended for use in prop validation (see
       validate_prop_from_recommended_values). Recommended values for a prop are set by defining
       methods called "_recommended_values_for_prop_$prop" in application modules that inherit
       from Prophet::Record.

       A string of the default summary format for record types that do not define their own
       summary format.

       A summary format should consist of format_string,field pairs, separated by | characters.

       Fields that are not property names must start with the "$" character and be handled in the
       "atom_value" routine.


       '%s,$luid | %s,summary | %s,status'

       Tries to find the summary format for the record type. Returns _default_summary_format if
       nothing better can be found.

   _atomize_summary_format [$format]
       Splits a summary format into pieces (separated by arbitrary whitespace and the |
       character). Returns the split list.

       If no summary format is supplied, this routine attempts to find one by calling

       Parses the summary format for this record's type (or the default summary format if no
       type-specific format exists).

       Returns a list of hashrefs to hashes which contain the following keys: "format", "prop",
       "value", and "formatted"

       (These are the format string, the property to be formatted, the value of that property,
       and the atom formatted according to "format_atom", respectively.)

       If no format string is supplied in a given format atom, %s is used.

       If a format atom $value's value does not start with a "$" character, it is swapped with
       the value of the prop $value (or the string "(no value)".

       All values are filtered through the function "atom_value".

       Returns a formatted string that is the summary for the record. In an array context,
       returns a list of

   atom_value $value_in
       Takes an input value from a summary format atom and returns either its output value or
       itself (because it is a property and its value should be retrieved from the props
       attribute instead).

       For example, an input value of "$uuid" would return the record object's "uuid" field.

   format_atom $string => $value
       Takes a format string / value pair and returns a formatted string for printing.  Dies with
       a message if there's an error in the format string that sprintf warn()s on.

       Finds the luid for the records uuid, or creates a new one. Returns the luid.

       Returns this record's changesets as a single string.

       Returns a list of method names that refer to other individual records

       Returns a list of method names that refer to collections
