// If delay parameter is not provided, default is 50 milliseconds.

 * A module to manage deferred, asynchronous writing of data files
 * to disk. Writing is deferred by waiting for a specified delay after
 * a request to save the data, before beginning to write. If more than
 * one save request is received during the delay, all requests are
 * fulfilled by a single write.
 * @constructor
 * @param aPath
 *        String representing the full path of the file where the data
 *        is to be written.
 * @param aDataProvider
 *        Callback function that takes no argument and returns the data to
 *        be written. If aDataProvider returns an ArrayBufferView, the
 *        bytes it contains are written to the file as is.
 *        If aDataProvider returns a String the data are UTF-8 encoded
 *        and then written to the file.
 * @param [optional] aDelay
 *        The delay in milliseconds between the first saveChanges() call
 *        that marks the data as needing to be saved, and when the DeferredSave
 *        begins writing the data to disk. Default 50 milliseconds.

   *         has finished being flushed, returning the number of bytes
   *         written. If all in-memory data is clean, completes with the
   *         result of the most recent write.
