 * A helper class for creating a read-only snapshot of memory-mapped data.
 * The Init() method initializes a read-write memory mapped region of the given
 * size, which can be initialized with arbitrary data. The Finalize() method
 * remaps that region as read-only (and backs it with a read-only file
 * descriptor), and initializes an AutoMemMap with the new contents.
 * The file descriptor for the resulting AutoMemMap can be shared among
 * processes, to safely access a shared, read-only copy of the data snapshot.
