/**
 * This class will wrap a nsIRunnable and dispatch it to the main thread
 * synchronously. This is different from nsIEventTarget.DISPATCH_SYNC:
 * this class does not spin the event loop waiting for the event to be
 * dispatched. This means that you don't risk reentrance from pending
 * messages, but you must be sure that the target thread does not ever block
 * on this thread, or else you will deadlock.
 *
 * Typical usage:
 * nsRefPtr<SyncRunnable> sr = new SyncRunnable(new myrunnable...());
 * sr->DispatchToThread(t);
 *
 * We also provide a convenience wrapper:
 * SyncRunnable::DispatchToThread(new myrunnable...());
 *
