typedef unsigned long long NodeId;
typedef unsigned long long NodeSize;
* In a directed graph with a root node `R`, a node `A` is said to "dominate" a
* node `B` iff every path from `R` to `B` contains `A`. A node `A` is said to
* be the "immediate dominator" of a node `B` iff it dominates `B`, is not `B`
* itself, and does not dominate any other nodes which also dominate `B` in
* turn.
* If we take every node from a graph `G` and create a new graph `T` with edges
* to each node from its immediate dominator, then `T` is a tree (each node has
* only one immediate dominator, or none if it is the root). This tree is called
* a "dominator tree".
* This interface represents a dominator tree constructed from a HeapSnapshot's
* heap graph. The domination relationship and dominator trees are useful tools
* for analyzing heap graphs because they tell you:
* - Exactly what could be reclaimed by the GC if some node `A` became
* unreachable: those nodes which are dominated by `A`,
* - The "retained size" of a node in the heap graph, in contrast to its
* "shallow size". The "shallow size" is the space taken by a node itself,
* not counting anything it references. The "retained size" of a node is its
* shallow size plus the size of all the things that would be collected if
* the original node wasn't (directly or indirectly) referencing them. In
* other words, the retained size is the shallow size of a node plus the
* shallow sizes of every other node it dominates. For example, the root
* node in a binary tree might have a small shallow size that does not take
* up much space itself, but it dominates the rest of the binary tree and
* its retained size is therefore significant (assuming no external
* references into the tree).
