[in] The handler to register.


The metadata engine sends notification by using the method that is provided by SetHandler, to compilers that do not generate records in an optimized way and that would like to optimize saved records.

If the callback method is not provided through SetHandler, no optimization will be performed on save except where several import scopes have been merged using IMapToken on merge for each scope.
