 * nsIDownloader
 * A downloader is a special implementation of a nsIStreamListener that will
 * make the contents of the stream available as a file.  This may utilize the
 * disk cache as an optimization to avoid an extra copy of the data on disk.
 * The resulting file is valid from the time the downloader completes until
 * the last reference to the downloader is released.

     * @param observer

     * @param downloadLocation
     *        the location where the stream contents should be written.
     *        if null, the downloader will select a location and the
     *        resulting file will be deleted (or otherwise made invalid)
     *        when the downloader object is destroyed.  if an explicit
     *        download location is specified then the resulting file will
     *        not be deleted, and it will be the callers responsibility
     *        to keep track of the file, etc.
