Describes how to change operations near the given location.

For example, this method could realize that the given operation is an X gate and that in the very next moment there is a Z gate. It would indicate that they should be combined into a Y gate by returning PointOptimizationSummary(clear_span=2, clear_qubits=op.qubits, new_operations=cirq.Y(op.qubits[0]))

circuit The circuit to improve.
index The index of the moment with the operation to focus on.
op The operation to focus improvements upon.

A description of the optimization to perform, or else None if no change should be made.
