RestorationScope class Null safety

Creates a new scope for restoration IDs used by descendant widgets to claim RestorationBuckets.

A restoration scope inserts a RestorationBucket into the widget tree, which descendant widgets can access via RestorationScope.of. It is uncommon for descendants to directly store data in this bucket. Instead, descendant widgets should consider storing their own restoration data in a child bucket claimed with RestorationBucket.claimChild from the bucket provided by this scope.

The bucket inserted into the widget tree by this scope has been claimed from the surrounding RestorationScope using the provided restorationId. If the RestorationScope is moved to a different part of the widget tree under a different RestorationScope, the bucket owned by this scope with all its children and the data contained in them is moved to the new scope as well.

This widget will not make a RestorationBucket available to descendants if restorationId is null or when there is no surrounding restoration scope to claim a bucket from. In this case, descendant widgets invoking RestorationScope.of will receive null as a return value indicating that no bucket is available for storing restoration data. This will turn off state restoration for the widget subtree.
