    Create a new class that is the rotated-Sun frame for a specific class of
    base frame. If such a class has already been created for this frame, the
    same class will be returned.

    This function is necessary because frame transformations depend
    on connection between specific frame *classes*.  So each type of frame
    needs its own distinct rotated-Sun frame class.  This function generates
    just that class, as well as ensuring that only one example of such a class
    actually gets created in any given Python session.

In essence, the coordinate axes of the frame are distorted by differential solar rotation. This allows using a coordinate representation at one time (at the ``obstime`` of the base coordinate frame) to point to a location at a different time that has been differentially rotated by the time difference (``duration``). Parameters ---------- representation : `~astropy.coordinates.BaseRepresentation` or ``None`` A representation object or ``None`` to have no data. Alternatively, use coordinate component keyword arguments, which depend on the base frame. base : `~astropy.coordinates.SkyCoord` or low-level coordinate object. The coordinate which specifies the base coordinate frame. The frame must be a SunPy frame. duration : `~astropy.units.Quantity` The duration of solar rotation (defaults to zero days). rotated_time : {parse_time_types} The time to rotate the Sun to. If provided, ``duration`` will be set to the difference between this time and the observation time in ``base``. rotation_model : `str` Accepted model names are ``'howard'`` (default), ``'snodgrass'``, ``'allen'``, and ``'rigid'``. See the documentation for :func:`~sunpy.physics.differential_rotation.diff_rot` for differences between these models. Notes ----- ``RotatedSunFrame`` is a factory class. That is, the objects that it yields are *not* actually objects of class ``RotatedSunFrame``. Instead, distinct classes are created on-the-fly for whatever the frame class is of ``base``.
