 * The layers protocol is spoken between thread contexts that manage
 * layer (sub)trees.  The protocol comprises atomically publishing
 * layer subtrees to a "shadow" thread context (which grafts the
 * subtree into its own tree), and atomically updating a published
 * subtree.  ("Atomic" in this sense is wrt painting.)

namespace mozilla {
namespace layers {

 * The PLayerTransaction protocol manages the layer tree for a single "browser".
 * The "browser" can be a top-level browser window, in which case the PLayer-
 * TransactionChild exists in the UI process. The "browser" can also be a content
 * tab, in which case the PLayerTransactionChild exists in the content process.
 * In either case, the PLayerTransactionParent exists in the GPU process (if
 * there is one) or the UI process otherwise.
