Base class for stateful widgets that have exactly one inflated instance in the tree.

Such widgets must be given a GlobalKey. This key can be generated by the subclass from its Type object, e.g. by calling super(key: new GlobalObjectKey(MyWidget)) where MyWidget is the name of the subclass.

Since only one instance can be inflated at a time, there is only ever one corresponding State object. That object is exposed, for convenience, via the currentState property.

When subclassing UniqueWidget, provide the corresponding State subclass as the type argument.
