"""Base inspect API.

:func:`.inspect` provides access to a contextual object
regarding a subject.   

Various subsections of SQLAlchemy,
such as the :class:`.Inspector`, :class:`.Mapper`, and
others register themselves with the "inspection registry" here
so that they may return a context object given a certain kind
of argument.

from . import util
_registrars = util.defaultdict(list)

def inspect(subject):
    type_ = type(subject)
    for cls in type_.__mro__:
        if cls in _registrars:
            reg = _registrars[cls]
        raise exc.InvalidRequestError(
                "No inspection system is "
                "available for object of type %s" % 
    return reg(subject)

                            "Type %s is already "
                            "registered" % type_)
