  extended by com.veromodo.tempo.sem.desc.Descriptor
      extended by com.veromodo.tempo.sem.desc.PlaceHolderDescriptor
All Implemented Interfaces:
java.lang.Comparable

public class PlaceHolderDescriptor
extends Descriptor

This class is used for generating descriptors which do not enter the environment At the time of creation only the class CheckType required this functionality becouse it needs to anotate an ASTType node with a descriptor but cannot add a value to the environment becouse the formal name is in it's calling class in the long run, for consistancy, this class should be removed
