 * Low-level websocket API: handles network protocol.

 * We are also making it scriptable for now, but this may change once we have
 * WebSockets for Workers.

     * The original URI used to construct the protocol connection. This is used
     * in the case of a redirect or URI "resolution" (e.g. resolving a
     * resource: URI to a file: URI) so that the original pre-redirect
     * URI can still be obtained.  This is never null.
    readonly attribute nsIURI originalURI;

     * The readonly URI corresponding to the protocol connection after any
     * redirections are completed.
    readonly attribute nsIURI URI;

     * The notification callbacks for authorization, etc..
    attribute nsIInterfaceRequestor notificationCallbacks;

     * Transport-level security information (if any)
    readonly attribute nsISupports securityInfo;

     * The load group of of the websocket
    attribute nsILoadGroup loadGroup;

     * The load info of the websocket
    attribute nsILoadInfo loadInfo;

     * Sec-Websocket-Protocol value
    attribute ACString protocol;

     * Sec-Websocket-Extensions response header value
    readonly attribute ACString extensions;

     * Init the WebSocketChannel with LoadInfo arguments.
     * @param aLoadingNode
     *        The loadingDocument of the channel.
     *        The element or document where the result of this request will be
     *        used. This is the document/element that will get access to the
     *        result of this request. For example for an image load, it's the
     *        document in which the image will be loaded. And for a CSS
     *        stylesheet it's the document whose rendering will be affected by
     *        the stylesheet.
     *        For loads that are not related to any document, such as loads coming
     *        from addons or internal browser features, use null here.
     * @param aLoadingPrincipal
     *        The loadingPrincipal of the channel.
     *        The principal of the document where the result of this request will
     *        be used.
     *        This defaults to the principal of aLoadingNode, so when aLoadingNode
     *        is passed then aLoadingPrincipal can be left as null. However, for
     *        loads where aLoadingNode is null this argument must be passed.
     *        For example for loads from a WebWorker, pass the principal
     *        of that worker. For loads from an addon or from internal browser
     *        features, pass the system principal.
     *        If aLoadingNode is null and the URI being loaded isn't coming from
     *        a webpage, the principal should almost always be the systemPrincipal.
     *        One exception to this is for loads from WebWorkers since they don't
     *        have any nodes to be passed as aLoadingNode.
     *        Please note, aLoadingPrincipal is *not* the principal of the
     *        resource being loaded. But rather the principal of the context
     *        where the resource will be used.
     * @param aTriggeringPrincipal
     *        The triggeringPrincipal of the load.
     *        The triggeringPrincipal is the principal of the resource that caused
     *        this particular URL to be loaded.
     *        For WebSockets, the loadingPrincipal and the triggeringPrincipal
     *        are *always* identical.
     * @param aSecurityFlags
     *        The securityFlags of the channel.
     *        Any of the securityflags defined in nsILoadInfo.idl
     * @param aContentPolicyType
     *        The contentPolicyType of the channel.
     *        Any of the content types defined in nsIContentPolicy.idl
     * @return reference to the new nsIChannel object
     * Keep in mind that URIs coming from a webpage should *never* use the
     * systemPrincipal as the loadingPrincipal.
     * Please note, if you provide both a loadingNode and a loadingPrincipal,
     * then loadingPrincipal must be equal to loadingNode->NodePrincipal().
     * But less error prone is to just supply a loadingNode.
