 * A class for representing string return values.  This can be either passed to
 * callees that have an nsString or nsAString out param or passed to a callee
 * that actually knows about this class and can work with it.  Such a callee may
 * call SetStringBuffer or SetOwnedString or SetOwnedAtom on this object, but
 * only if it plans to keep holding a strong ref to the internal stringbuffer!
 * The proper way to store a value in this class is to either to do nothing
 * (which leaves this as an empty string), to call SetStringBuffer with a
 * non-null stringbuffer, to call SetOwnedString, to call SetOwnedAtom, to call
 * SetNull(), or to call AsAString() and set the value in the resulting
 * nsString.  These options are mutually exclusive! Don't do more than one of
 * them.
 * The proper way to extract a value is to check IsNull().  If not null, then
 * check HasStringBuffer().  If that's true, check for a zero length, and if the
 * length is nonzero call StringBuffer().  If the length is zero this is the
 * empty string.  If HasStringBuffer() returns false, call AsAString() and get
 * the value from that.
