/* Naming and calling conventions:
 * A"hex" prefix means "hex-encoded string representation of a byte sequence"
 * e.g. "ae34bcdf123"
 * A "base64url" prefix means "base-64-URL-encoded string repressentation of a
 * byte sequence.
 * e.g. "eyJhbGciOiJSUzI1NiJ9"
 * we use the no-padding approach to base64-url-encoding
 * Callbacks take an "in nsresult rv" argument that indicates whether the async
 * operation succeeded. On success, rv will be a success code
 * (NS_SUCCEEDED(rv) / Components.isSuccessCode(rv)) and the remaining
 * arguments are as defined in the documentation for the callback. When the
 * operation fails, rv will be a failure code (NS_FAILED(rv) /
 * !Components.isSuccessCode(rv)) and the values of the remaining arguments will
 * be unspecified.
 * Key Types:
 * "RS256": RSA + SHA-256.
 * "DS160": DSA with SHA-1. A 1024-bit prime and a 160-bit subprime with SHA-1.
 * we use these abbreviated algorithm names as per the JWA spec
