 Doing this helps make developers aware of the implementation. To make it possible
 for a <code>RowSet</code> object to use an implementation, the vendor must register
 it with the <code>SyncFactory</code> singleton. (See the class comment for
 <code>SyncProvider</code> for a full explanation of the registration process and 
 the naming convention to be used.)
