/**
 * Utility base class for thin controllers.
 *
 * Controllers that use this base class have access to a number of utility
 * methods and to the Container, which can greatly reduce boilerplate dependency
 * handling code.  However, it also makes the class considerably more
 * difficult to unit test. Therefore this base class should only be used by
 * controller classes that contain only trivial glue code.  Controllers that
 * contain sufficiently complex logic that it's worth testing should not use
 * this base class but use ContainerInjectionInterface instead, or even better be
 * refactored to be trivial glue code.
 *
 * The services exposed here are those that it is reasonable for a well-behaved
 * controller to leverage. A controller that needs other services may
 * need to be refactored into a thin controller and a dependent unit-testable
 * service.
