     * For child process, set this to make sure that a valid file descriptor of
     * JAR file is always provided when calling NSPRFileDesc().
     * Must be set before Open() or AsyncOpen() to be effective.
     * Note that the file descriptor returned by NSPRFileDesc() is duplicated
     * from the original, which shares its file offset with the original.  If
     * the file offset is modified (ex: by lseek/read/write) on one of the
     * shared descriptors, the offset is also changed for the other.
     * It can be safely used only with operations that take absolute offsets,
     * such as mmap/pread/pwrite.
