/*
 * NOTE: PLEASE AVOID USE OF AbstractThread OUTSIDE MEDIA CODE WHEN POSSIBLE.
 * The nsISerialEventTarget interface should be preferred. AbstractThread
 * has unusual "tail dispatch" semantics that usually are not needed outside
 * of media code.
 *
 * We often want to run tasks on a target that guarantees that events will never
 * run in parallel. There are various target types that achieve this - namely
 * nsIThread and TaskQueue. Note that nsIThreadPool (which implements
 * nsIEventTarget) does not have this property, so we do not want to use
 * nsIEventTarget for this purpose. This class encapsulates the specifics of
 * the structures we might use here and provides a consistent interface.
 *
 * At present, the supported AbstractThread implementations are TaskQueue,
 * AbstractThread::MainThread() and DocGroup::AbstractThreadFor().
 * If you add support for another thread that is not the MainThread, you'll need
 * to figure out how to make it unique such that comparing AbstractThread
 * pointers is equivalent to comparing nsIThread pointers.
