/** Abstract branching decision base class

  In the abstract, an CbcBranchDecision object is expected to be able to
  compare two possible branching choices.

  The #betterBranch() method is the crucial routine. It is expected to be able
  to compare two \link CbcBranchingObject CbcBranchingObjects \endlink.

  See CbcObject for an overview of the three classes (CbcObject,
  CbcBranchingObject, and CbcBranchDecision) which make up cbc's branching
  model.

     process from the Cbc branching classes to Osi branching classes. The test
     for use of the Osi branching classes is CbcModel::branchingMethod_
     non-null (i.e., it points to one of these CbcBranchDecision objects) and
     that branch decision object has an OsiChooseVariable method set. In which
     case, we'll use it, rather than the choose[*]Variable methods defined in
     CbcNode.
