  // true when called from nsIChannel::AsyncOpen and false otherwise.  When
  // async is true, the resulting stream will be used with a nsIInputStreamPump
  // instance.  This means that if it is a non-blocking stream that supports
  // nsIAsyncInputStream that it will be read entirely on the main application
  // thread, and its AsyncWait method will be called whenever ReadSegments
  // returns NS_BASE_STREAM_WOULD_BLOCK.  Otherwise, if the stream is blocking,
  // then it will be read on one of the background I/O threads, and it does not
  // need to implement ReadSegments.  If async is false, this method may return

  // subclass to enable nsIProgressEventSink::OnStatus events.  If this method
  // returns true, then the statusArg out param specifies the "statusArg" value
  // to pass to the OnStatus method.  By default, OnStatus messages are
  // suppressed.  The status parameter passed to this method is the status value
  // from the OnTransportStatus method.
