#pragma mark ABSTRACT
// This singleton class loads all registered parsers and keeps instances around for the duration of the app lifetime.
// A parser is thus an extremely long-lived object, which can store state and talk to asynchronous APIs. This gives
// developers the chance to implemenent parsers for web based services, Spotlight, Image Capture etc. Just before the
// app quits the parsers are unloaded, at which time they can clean up...
//
// Although individual parsers are intended to work on background threads, IMBParserController instances are not threadsafe and should only be accessed from the main thread. Class methods for parser registration should be threadsafe
