/**
 * ***** this is the suite version of nsIBrowserGlue *****
 * nsISuiteGlue is a dirty and rather fluid interface to host shared utility
 * methods used by suite UI code, but which are not local to a suite window.
 * The component implementing this interface is meant to be a singleton
 * (service) and should progressively replace some of the shared "glue" code
 * scattered in suite/ (e.g. bits of utilOverlay.js,
 * contentAreaUtils.js, globalOverlay.js), avoiding dynamic
 * inclusion and initialization of a ton of JS code for *each* window.
 * Due to its nature and origin, this interface won't probably be the most
 * elegant or stable in the mozilla codebase, but its aim is rather pragmatic:
 * 1) reducing the performance overhead which affects browser window load;
 * 2) allow global hooks (e.g. startup and shutdown observers) which survive
 * suite windows to accomplish suite-related activities, such as shutdown
 * sanitization (see bug #284086)
