Bug 181137 - part 8: Make ContentIteratorBase and its subclasses non-refcountable r=smaug This patch makes ContentIteratorBase, PostContentIterator, PreContentIterator and ContentSubtreeIterator classes non-refcountable because most users can create their instances in stack and such users may be in a hot path. So, we can save a lot of cost of instantiation. Unfortunately, only ScriptableContentIterator creates one of the concrete classes and needs to destroy it properly. Therefore, its EnsureContentIterator(), destructor, traverse and unlink code becomes messy. However, ScriptableContentIterator was designed for automated tests and we need to maintain it not so many times. Therefore, improvement of other users must be worthwhiler than this demerit.
