 * The base interface for both pure asynchronous storage statements 
 * (mozIStorageAsyncStatement) and 'classic' storage statements
 * (mozIStorageStatement) that can be used for both synchronous and asynchronous
 * purposes.

   * Finalizes a statement so you can successfully close a database connection.
   * Once a statement has been finalized it can no longer be used for any
   * purpose.
   * Statements are implicitly finalized when their reference counts hits zero.
   * If you are a native (C++) caller this is accomplished by setting all of
   * your nsCOMPtr instances to be NULL.  If you are operating from JavaScript
   * code then you cannot rely on this behavior because of the involvement of
   * garbage collection.
   * When finalizing an asynchronous statement you do not need to worry about
   * whether the statement has actually been executed by the asynchronous
   * thread; you just need to call finalize after your last call to executeAsync
   * involving the statement.  However, you do need to use asyncClose instead of
   * close on the connection if any statements have been used asynchronously.

   * @param aValueSize
