   * Bits that can be passed to the decoder to affect decoding.
   * @name decodeflags
   * Meanings:
   * DECODER_FLAG_NONE: No flags
   * DECODER_FLAG_HEADERONLY: Read basic data from the image in order to 
   * set up the image container,  but don't read any actual image data.
  const long DECODER_FLAG_NONE       = 0x0;
  const long DECODER_FLAG_HEADERONLY = 0x1;

   * Initialize an image decoder.
   * @param aContainer The image container to decode to.
   * @param aObserver The observer for decode notification events.
   * @param aFlags Flags for the decoder
   * @note The decoder should always pass NULL as the 
   * first two parameters to all of the imgIDecoderObserver APIs.
  void init(in imgIContainer aImage, in imgIDecoderObserver aObserver,
            in unsigned long aFlags);

   * Closes the stream.
   * @param aFlags Close flags of the CLOSE_FLAG_* Variety
   * Resources are always freed with this call. If notifications are sent,
   * OnStopDecode is guaranteed to be called if it hasn't been called already.
   * CLOSE_FLAG_DONTNOTIFY - Don't send any observer notifications, and don't
   * call imgIContainer::decodingComplete().
  const long CLOSE_FLAG_DONTNOTIFY = 0x01;
  void close(in PRUint32 aFlags);

   * Flushes the stream.
  void flush();

   * Writes data into the stream from an input stream.
   * For Header-Only decodes, OnStartContainer is the only notification
   * fired.
   * If a decoding error occurs, an internal flag is set and an error is
   * returned. Each subsequent call to writeFrom will fail immediately
   * for the lifetime of the decoder. Shutdown notifications of the OnStopX
   * variety, as well as DecodingComplete(), are guaranteed not to be called
   * if a decoding error occurs.
   * Implementer's note: This method is defined by this interface in order
   * to allow the output stream to efficiently copy the data from the input
   * stream into its internal buffer (if any). If this method was provide
   * as an external facility, a separate char* buffer would need to be used
   * in order to call the output stream's other Write method.
   * @param fromStream the stream from which the data is read
   * @param count the maximun number of bytes to write
  void writeFrom(in nsIInputStream inStr, in unsigned long count);
