	It is possible to pass null for both parentNativeWindow and parentWidget,
	but only docshells support this.

	@param parentNativeWindow - This allows a system to pass in the parenting
		window as a native reference rather than relying on the calling
		application to have created the parent window as an nsIWidget.  This 
		value will be ignored (should be nullptr) if an nsIWidget is passed in to
		the parentWidget parameter.

	@param parentWidget - This allows a system to pass in the parenting widget.
		This allows some objects to optimize themselves and rely on the view
		system for event flow rather than creating numerous native windows.  If
		one of these is not available, nullptr should be passed.

	@param x - This is the x co-ordinate relative to the parent to place the
		window.

	@param y - This is the y co-ordinate relative to the parent to place the 
		window.

	@param cx - This is the width	for the window to be.

	@param cy - This is the height for the window to be.

	@return	NS_OK - Window Init succeeded without a problem.
				NS_ERROR_UNEXPECTED - Call was unexpected at this time.  Most likely
					due to you calling it after create() has been called.
				NS_ERROR_INVALID_ARG - controls that require either a parentNativeWindow
					or a parentWidget may return invalid arg when they do not
