def memoizer(new_dict=dict):
    Creates a memoizer with the given dictionary policy.
    The memoizer thus obtained can be used as a decorator to remember the
    results of calls to long-running functions, such as loading images
    from disk. It also means that there will only be one copy of the image,
    which can be quite handy when dealing with restricted resources.

        # Your long running image-loading code goes here.
