 * This header exports one public method in the mozilla namespace:
 *   template<class SmartPtr>
 *   void ClearOnShutdown(SmartPtr *aPtr, aPhase=ShutdownPhase::ShutdownFinal)
 * This function takes a pointer to a smart pointer and nulls the smart pointer
 * on shutdown (and a particular phase of shutdown as needed).  If a phase
 * is specified, the ptr will be cleared at the start of that phase.  Also,
 * if a phase has already occurred when ClearOnShutdown() is called it will
 * cause a MOZ_ASSERT.  In case a phase is not explicitly cleared we will
 * clear it on the next phase that occurs.
 * This is useful if you have a global smart pointer object which you don't
 * want to "leak" on shutdown.
 * Although ClearOnShutdown will work with any smart pointer (i.e., nsCOMPtr,
 * nsRefPtr, nsAutoPtr, StaticRefPtr, and StaticAutoPtr), you probably want to
 * use it only with StaticRefPtr and StaticAutoPtr.  There is no way to undo a
 * call to ClearOnShutdown, so you can call it only on smart pointers which you
 * know will live until the program shuts down.  In practice, these are likely
 * global variables, which should be Static{Ref,Auto}Ptr.
 * ClearOnShutdown is currently main-thread only because we don't want to
 * accidentally free an object from a different thread than the one it was
 * created on.
