Detailed Description

The TypeRepository provides a repository in which types can be mapped to Type objects.

Only one TypeRepository is allowed, hence it is implemented with a singleton pattern.

Notice that problems might occur if trying to use the TypeRepository with user defined type across dynamic linked libraries.
