#include "nsISupports.idl"

 * This interface allows Firefox to expose different implementations of its own
 * classes to add-ons. Once an interposition is created, it must be assigned to
 * an add-on using Cu.setAddonInterposition (JS) or xpc::SetAddonInterposition
 * (C++). In both cases, the arguments should be the add-on ID and the
 * interposition object (which must be an nsIAddonInterposition). This must
 * happen before any compartments are created for the given add-on.
 * Every time the add-on accesses a property on any object outside its own set
 * of compartments, XPConnect will call the interposition's
 * interpose method. If the interposition wants to replace the given
 * property, it should return a replacement property descriptor for it. If not,
 * it should return null.
interface nsIAddonInterposition : nsISupports
     * Returns a replacement property descriptor for a browser object.
     * @param addonId The ID of the add-on accessing the property.
     * @param target The browser object being accessed.
     * @param iface The IID of the interface the property is associated with. This
     *              parameter is only available for XPCWrappedNative targets. As
     *              such, it's only useful as an optimization to avoid
     *              instanceof checks on the target.
     * @param prop The name of the property being accessed.
     * @return A property descriptor or null.
