/*
 * The following classes are designed to cause assertions to detect
 * inadvertent use of guard objects as temporaries. In other words,
 * when we have a guard object whose only purpose is its constructor and
 * destructor (and is never otherwise referenced), the intended use
 * might be:
 *
 *   AutoRestore savePainting(mIsPainting);
 *
 * but is is easy to accidentally write:
 *
 *   AutoRestore(mIsPainting);
 *
 * which compiles just fine, but runs the destructor well before the
 * intended time.
 *
 * They work by adding (#ifdef DEBUG) an additional parameter to the
 * guard object's constructor, with a default value, so that users of
 * the guard object's API do not need to do anything. The default value
 * of this parameter is a temporary object. C++ (ISO/IEC 14882:1998),
 * section 12.2 [class.temporary], clauses 4 and 5 seem to assume a
 * guarantee that temporaries are destroyed in the reverse of their
 * construction order, but I actually can't find a statement that that
 * is true in the general case (beyond the two specific cases mentioned
 * there). However, it seems to be true.
 *
 * These classes are intended to be used only via the macros immediately
 * below them:
 *
 *   MOZ_DECL_USE_GUARD_OBJECT_NOTIFIER declares (ifdef DEBUG) a member
 *     variable, and should be put where a declaration of a private
 *     member variable would be placed.
 *   MOZ_GUARD_OBJECT_NOTIFIER_PARAM should be placed at the end of the
 *     parameters to each constructor of the guard object; it declares
 *     (ifdef DEBUG) an additional parameter. (But use the *_ONLY_PARAM
 *     variant for constructors that take no other parameters.)
 *   MOZ_GUARD_OBJECT_NOTIFIER_PARAM_IN_IMPL should likewise be used in
 *     the implementation of such constructors when they are not inline.
 *   MOZ_GUARD_OBJECT_NOTIFIER_PARAM_TO_PARENT should be used in
 *     the implementation of such constructors to pass the parameter to
 *     a base class that also uses these macros
 *   MOZ_GUARD_OBJECT_NOTIFIER_INIT is a statement that belongs in each
 *     constructor. It uses the parameter declared by
 *     MOZ_GUARD_OBJECT_NOTIFIER_PARAM.
 *
 * For more details, and examples of using these macros, see
 * https://developer.mozilla.org/en/Using_RAII_classes_in_Mozilla
