   *
   * This dispatch function hands off the passed-in variables to type-specific
   * hook_TYPE_alter() implementations in modules. It ensures a consistent
   * interface for all altering operations.
   *
   * A maximum of 2 alterable arguments is supported. In case more arguments need
   * to be passed and alterable, modules provide additional variables assigned by
   * reference in the last $context argument:
   * @code
   *   $context = array(
   *     'alterable' => &$alterable,
   *     'unalterable' => $unalterable,
   *     'foo' => 'bar',
   *   );
   *   $this->alter('mymodule_data', $alterable1, $alterable2, $context);
   * @endcode
   *
   * Note that objects are always passed by reference in PHP5. If it is absolutely
   * required that no implementation alters a passed object in $context, then an
   * object needs to be cloned:
   * @code
   *   $context = array(
   *     'unalterable_object' => clone $object,
   *   );
   *   $this->alter('mymodule_data', $data, $context);
   * @endcode
   *
   * @param string|array $type
   *   A string describing the type of the alterable $data. 'form', 'links',
   *   'node_content', and so on are several examples. Alternatively can be an
   *   array, in which case hook_TYPE_alter() is invoked for each value in the
   *   array, ordered first by module, and then for each module, in the order of
   *   values in $type. For example, when Form API is using $this->alter() to
   *   execute both hook_form_alter() and hook_form_FORM_ID_alter()
   *   implementations, it passes array('form', 'form_' . $form_id) for $type.
   * @param mixed $data
   *   The variable that will be passed to hook_TYPE_alter() implementations to be
   *   altered. The type of this variable depends on the value of the $type
   *   argument. For example, when altering a 'form', $data will be a structured
   *   array. When altering a 'profile', $data will be an object.
   * @param mixed $context1
   *   (optional) An additional variable that is passed by reference.
   * @param mixed $context2
   *   (optional) An additional variable that is passed by reference. If more
   *   context needs to be provided to implementations, then this should be an
   *   associative array as described above.
