Expand description

The guts of normalize: normalize a specific projection like <T as Trait>::Item. The result is always a type (and possibly additional obligations). If ambiguity arises, which implies that there are unresolved type variables in the projection, we will substitute a fresh type variable $X and generate a new obligation <T as Trait>::Item == $X for later.
