The Deref trait

The Deref<Target = U> trait allows a type to implicitly implement all the methods of the type U. When attempting to resolve a method call, the compiler will search the top-level type for the implementation of the called method. If no such method is found, .deref() is called and the compiler continues to search for the method implementation in the returned type U.
