/*
 * Helper classes encapsulating access to the callee, |this| value, arguments,
 * and argument count for a function call.
 *
 * The intent of JS::CallArgs and JS::CallReceiver is that they be used to
 * encapsulate access to the un-abstracted |unsigned argc, Value* vp| arguments
 * to a function.  It's possible (albeit deprecated) to manually index into
 * |vp| to access the callee, |this|, and arguments of a function, and to set
 * its return value.  It's also possible to use the supported API of JS_CALLEE,
 * JS_THIS, JS_ARGV, JS_RVAL and JS_SET_RVAL to the same ends.  But neither API
 * has the error-handling or moving-GC correctness of CallArgs or CallReceiver.
 * New code should use CallArgs and CallReceiver instead whenever possible.
 *
 * The eventual plan is to change JSNative to take |const CallArgs&| directly,
 * for automatic assertion of correct use and to make calling functions more
 * efficient.  Embedders should start internally switching away from using
 * |argc| and |vp| directly, except to create a |CallArgs|.  Then, when an
 * eventual release making that change occurs, porting efforts will require
 * changing methods' signatures but won't require invasive changes to the
 * methods' implementations, potentially under time pressure.
