> Add a convenience function that removes the need for applications that create Markers
for many CASes to separately manage them (e.g., map CAS to its related Marker), and thereby
simplify application code.
> Today's current level of support allows a user to create a Marker for a given CAS (through
the createMarker() method which is part of the CAS interface).
> This proposed support will allow the user to subsequently query a given CAS and obtain
a complete list of Markers created against this CAS. This function is a natural extension
to the given level of support (i.e., if one can create Marker for a given CAS, one should
be able to query the CAS to find said Marker.)
> Having this support significant simplifies application code, offering advantages from
a memory overhead, performance, and maintainability standpoint.  For example, the application
won't need to build and maintain a map of CASes to Markers, given the Marker is hanging off
the CAS to begin with.
