"""Interface and utility functions to XLA.

This module wraps the XLA client(s) and builders to standardize their interfaces
and provide some automatic type mapping logic for converting between Numpy and
XLA. There are also a handful of related casting utilities.

  There are two methods used to discover plugin modules. They are intended
  to be used together by implementors in order to cover all packaging and
  development cases:

  1. Define a globally unique module under the `jax_plugins` namespace
     package (i.e. just create a `jax_plugins` directory and define your
     module below it).
  2. If building a package via pyproject.toml or, advertise your
     plugin module name by including an entry-point under the `jax_plugins`
     group which points to your full module name.

  During Jax startup, Jax will load each module discovered in such a way and
  call its `initialize()` function. It is expected that this function should
  register its concrete plugin name/implementations via call(s) to
  `jax._src.xla_bridge.register_plugin(name, priority=, library_paty=,
  options=)`. Since `initialize()` functions are called for all installed
  plugins, they should avoid doing expensive, non-registration related work.

  library_path and options to be resolved via a callback. This would enable
  light-weight plugin registration in cases where options need to be derived
  from heavy-weight system initialization.
