// We have implemented a custom iterator class for array rather than using
// raw pointers into the backing storage to improve the safety of C++11-style
// range based iteration in the presence of array mutation, or script execution
// (bug 1299489).
// Mutating an array which is being iterated is still wrong, and will either
// cause elements to be missed or firefox to crash, but will not trigger memory
// safety problems due to the release-mode bounds checking found in ElementAt.
// Dereferencing this iterator returns type Element. When Element is a reference
// type, this iterator implements the full standard random access iterator spec,
// and can be treated in many ways as though it is a pointer. Otherwise, it is
// just enough to be used in range-based for loop.
