#include "nsISupports.idl"

 * Low-level websocket API: handles network protocol.  
 * This is primarly intended for use by the higher-level nsIWebSocket.idl.
 * We are also making it scriptable for now, but this may change once we have
 * WebSockets for Workers.

     * The original URI used to construct the protocol connection. This is used
     * in the case of a redirect or URI "resolution" (e.g. resolving a
     * resource: URI to a file: URI) so that the original pre-redirect
     * URI can still be obtained.  This is never null.

     * The readonly URI corresponding to the protocol connection after any
     * redirections are completed.

     * websocket connection is reopened.
