/** @brief Type trait that determines if a C++ type can be mapped to
 *  an MPI data type.
 *
 *  This type trait determines if it is possible to build an MPI data
 *  type that represents a C++ data type. When this is the case, @c
 *  is_mpi_datatype derives @c mpl::true_ and the MPI data type will
 *  be accessible via @c get_mpi_datatype.

 *  For any C++ type that maps to a built-in MPI data type (see @c
 *  is_mpi_builtin_datatype), @c is_mpi_data_type is trivially
 *  true. However, any POD ("Plain Old Data") type containing types
 *  that themselves can be represented by MPI data types can itself be
 *  represented as an MPI data type. For instance, a @c point3d class
 *  containing three @c double values can be represented as an MPI
 *  data type. To do so, first make the data type Serializable (using
 *  the Boost.Serialization library); then, specialize the @c
 *  is_mpi_datatype trait for the point type so that it will derive @c
 *  mpl::true_:
 *
 *    @code
 *    namespace boost { namespace mpi {
 *      template<> struct is_mpi_datatype<point>
 *        : public mpl::true_ { };
 *    } }

/** @brief Returns an MPI data type for a C++ type.
 *
 *  The function creates an MPI data type for the given object @c
 *  x. The first time it is called for a class @c T, the MPI data type
 *  is created and cached. Subsequent calls for objects of the same
 *  type @c T return the cached MPI data type.  The type @c T must
 *  allow creation of an MPI data type. That is, it must be
 *  Serializable and @c is_mpi_datatype<T> must derive @c mpl::true_.
 *
 *  For fundamental MPI types, a copy of the MPI data type of the MPI
 *  library is returned.
 *
 *  Note that since the data types are cached, the caller should never
 *  call @c MPI_Type_free() for the MPI data type returned by this
 *  call.
 *
 *  @param x for an optimized call, a constructed object of the type
 *  should be passed; otherwise, an object will be
 *  default-constructed.
 *
 *  @returns The MPI data type corresponding to type @c T.
