/**
 * Where mozilla::LinkedList strives for ease of use above all other
 * considerations, mozilla::DoublyLinkedList strives for flexibility. The
 * following are things that can be done with mozilla::DoublyLinkedList that
 * cannot be done with mozilla::LinkedList:
 *
 *   * Arbitrary next/prev placement and naming. With the tools provided here,
 *     the next and previous pointers can be at the end of the structure, in a
 *     sub-structure, stored with a tag, in a union, wherever, as long as you
 *     can look them up and set them on demand.
 *   * Can be used without deriving from a new base and, thus, does not require
 *     use of constructors.
 *
 * Example:
 *
 *   class Observer : public DoublyLinkedListElement<Observer>
 *   {
 *   public:
 *     void observe(char* aTopic) { ... }
 *   };
 *
 *   class ObserverContainer
 *   {
 *   private:
 *     DoublyLinkedList<Observer> mList;
 *
 *   public:
 *     void addObserver(Observer* aObserver)
 *     {
 *       // Will assert if |aObserver| is part of another list.
 *       mList.pushBack(aObserver);
 *     }
 *
 *     void removeObserver(Observer* aObserver)
 *     {
 *       // Will assert if |aObserver| is not part of |list|.
 *       mList.remove(aObserver);
 *     }
 *
 *     void notifyObservers(char* aTopic)
 *     {
 *       for (Observer* o : mList) {
 *         o->observe(aTopic);
 *       }
 *     }
 *   };
