Base class for all reflection classes.
While generating a documentation, TypeDoc generates an instance of ProjectReflection as the root for all reflections within the project. All other reflections are represented by the DeclarationReflection class.
This base class exposes the basic properties one may use to traverse the reflection tree. You can use the children and parent properties to walk the tree. The groups property contains a list of all children grouped and sorted for rendering.
Unique id of this reflection.
The kind of this reflection.
The symbol name of this reflection.
The original name of the TypeScript declaration.
The name of the anchor of this child. TODO: Reflections shouldn't know anchors exist. Move this to a serializer.
The parsed documentation comment attached to this reflection.
A list of generated css classes that should be applied to representations of this reflection in the generated markup. TODO: Reflections shouldn't know about CSS. Move this property to the correct serializer.
Is the url pointing to an individual document?
When FALSE, the url points to an anchor tag on a page of a different reflection. TODO: Reflections shouldn't know how they are rendered. Move this to the correct serializer.

Try to find a reflection by its name.
The found reflection or null.
This method not be used, it naively splits the name by a
