/**
 * This header file provides macros which help you make your class implement
 * nsIClassInfo.  Implementing nsIClassInfo is particularly helpful if you have
 * a C++ class which implements multiple interfaces and which you access from
 * JavaScript.  If that class implements nsIClassInfo, the JavaScript code
 * won't have to call QueryInterface on instances of the class; all methods
 * from all interfaces returned by GetInterfaces() will be available
 * automagically.
 *
 * Here's all you need to do.  Given a class
 *
 *   class nsFooBar : public nsIFoo, public nsIBar { };
 *
 * you should already have the following nsISupports implementation in its cpp
 * file:
 *
 *   NS_IMPL_ISUPPORTS(nsFooBar, nsIFoo, nsIBar).
 *
 * Change this to
 *
 *   NS_IMPL_CLASSINFO(nsFooBar, nullptr, 0, NS_FOOBAR_CID)
 *   NS_IMPL_ISUPPORTS_CI(nsFooBar, nsIFoo, nsIBar)
 *
 * If nsFooBar is threadsafe, change the 0 above to nsIClassInfo::THREADSAFE.
 * If it's a singleton, use nsIClassInfo::SINGLETON.  The full list of flags is
 * in nsIClassInfo.idl.
 *
 * The nullptr parameter is there so you can pass a function for converting
 * from an XPCOM object to a scriptable helper.  Unless you're doing
 * specialized JS work, you can probably leave this as nullptr.
 *
 * This file also defines the NS_IMPL_QUERY_INTERFACE_CI macro, which you can
 * use to replace NS_IMPL_QUERY_INTERFACE, if you use that instead of
 * NS_IMPL_ISUPPORTS.
 *
 * That's it!  The rest is gory details.
 *
 *
 * Notice that nsFooBar didn't need to inherit from nsIClassInfo in order to
 * "implement" it.  However, after adding these macros to nsFooBar, you you can
 * QueryInterface an instance of nsFooBar to nsIClassInfo.  How can this be?
 *
 * The answer lies in the NS_IMPL_ISUPPORTS_CI macro.  It modifies nsFooBar's
 * QueryInterface implementation such that, if we ask to QI to nsIClassInfo, it
 * returns a singleton object associated with the class.  (That singleton is
 * defined by NS_IMPL_CLASSINFO.)  So all nsFooBar instances will return the
 * same object when QI'ed to nsIClassInfo.  (You can see this in
 * NS_IMPL_QUERY_CLASSINFO below.)
 *
 * This hack breaks XPCOM's rules, since if you take an instance of nsFooBar,
 * QI it to nsIClassInfo, and then try to QI to nsIFoo, that will fail.  On the
 * upside, implementing nsIClassInfo doesn't add a vtable pointer to instances
 * of your class.
 *
 * In principal, you can also implement nsIClassInfo by inheriting from the
 * interface.  But some code expects that when it QI's an object to
 * nsIClassInfo, it gets back a singleton which isn't attached to any
 * particular object.  If a class were to implement nsIClassInfo through
 * inheritance, that code might QI to nsIClassInfo and keep the resulting
 * object alive, thinking it was only keeping alive the classinfo singleton,
 * but in fact keeping a whole instance of the class alive.  See, e.g., bug
 * 658632.
 *
 * Unless you specifically need to have a different nsIClassInfo instance for
 * each instance of your class, you should probably just implement nsIClassInfo
 * as a singleton.
