public interface CodecRegistryA registry of Codec instances searchable by the class that the Codec can encode and decode.
CodecRegistryinterface adds no stipulations to the general contract for the Object.equals, programmers who implement the
CodecRegistryinterface "directly" must exercise care if they choose to override the
Object.equals. It is not necessary to do so, and the simplest course of action is to rely on Object's implementation, but the implementer may wish to implement a "value comparison" in place of the default "reference comparison."
