// nsILoadGroup::notificationCallbacks for supported interfaces.
// nsBaseChannel implements nsITransportEventSink to support progress & status
// notifications generated by the transport layer.

  // Implemented by subclass to supply data stream.  The parameter, async, is
  // true when called from nsIChannel::AsyncOpen and false otherwise.  When
  // async is true, the resulting stream will be used with a nsIInputStreamPump
  // instance.  This means that if it is a non-blocking stream that supports
  // nsIAsyncInputStream that it will be read entirely on the main application
  // thread, and its AsyncWait method will be called whenever ReadSegments
  // returns NS_BASE_STREAM_WOULD_BLOCK.  Otherwise, if the stream is blocking,
  // then it will be read on one of the background I/O threads, and it does not
  // need to implement ReadSegments.  If async is false, this method may return
  // NS_ERROR_NOT_IMPLEMENTED to cause the basechannel to implement Open in
  // terms of AsyncOpen (see NS_ImplementChannelOpen).
  // A callee is allowed to return an nsIChannel instead of an nsIInputStream.
  // That case will be treated as a redirect to the new channel.  By default
  // *channel will be set to null by the caller, so callees who don't want to

  // lieu of returning a stream. If implemented, OpenContentStream will never
  // be called for async channels. If not implemented, AsyncOpen will fall
  // back to OpenContentStream.
  // On success, the callee must begin pumping data to the stream listener,
  // and at some point call OnStartRequest followed by OnStopRequest.
  // Additionally, it may provide a request object which may be used to
  // suspend, resume, and cancel the underlying request.

  // returns true, then the statusArg out param specifies the "statusArg" value
  // to pass to the OnStatus method.  By default, OnStatus messages are

  // NS_BINDING_REDIRECTED.  A failure return from this method means that the
