 * \brief the base class which is used to recursively perform trace
 *        namespace resolution.
 * \ingroup tracing
 * Subclasses must implement the two pure virtal methods defined in 
 * this base class:
 *  - ns3::TraceResolver::Connect
 *  - ns3::TraceResolver::Disconnect.
class TraceResolver

   * \param path the namespace path to resolver
   * \param cb the callback to connect to the matching namespace
   * \param context the context in which to store the trace context
   * First, extract the leading path element from the input path, and 
   * match this leading patch element against any terminal trace source
   * contained in this trace resolver.
   * Second, recursively resolve the rest of the path using other 
   * objects if there are any.
   * If there is any TraceContextElement associated to one of the matching
   * elements, it should be added to the input TraceContext.
  virtual void Connect (std::string path, CallbackBase const &cb, const TraceContext &context) = 0;
   * \param path the namespace path to resolver
   * \param cb the callback to disconnect in the matching namespace
   * This method should behave as Connect.

  virtual void PrintAvailable (std::string path, const TraceContext &context, std::ostream &os) = 0;
   * \param path a namespace path
   * \returns the initial element of the path.
   * If the input path is "/foo/...", the return
   * value is "foo".
  std::string GetElement (std::string path);
   * \param path a namespace path
   * \returns the subpath.
   * If the input path is "/foo/bar/...", the return
   * value is "/bar/...".
