Detailed Description

iFactory is an interface that is used to create instances of shared classes.

Any object supports the iFactory interface; a QueryInterface about iFactory will return a valid pointer to the factory that was used to create that object. Thus you can clone objects without even knowing their types.

NOTE: Currently you cannot add factories to the class factory list since it is internally maintained by SCF. That is, you can use an existing factory but cannot create objects that implements this interface (well, you can but its pointless since you won't be able to add it to the factory list). Instead, you should register new class factories through the normal class registration mechanism.
