Bug 1293596 (part 2) - Rework nsIWidget bounds getters. r=mstange. This patch makes GetBounds(), GetScreenBounds() and GetClientBounds() more obviously infallible, like existing functions such as GetNaturalBounds() and GetClientSize(). This results in clearer behaviour in nsCocoaWindow.mm if Objective C exceptions occur. Along the way, the patch removes some useless failure checks for these functions. The patch also removes the NS_IMETHOD from GetRestoredBounds and makes that function MOZ_MUST_USE.

This directory contains common Python code.

The basic rule is that if Python code is cross-module (that's "module" in the
Mozilla meaning - as in "module ownership") and is MPL-compatible, it should
go here.

What should not go here:

* Python that is not MPL-compatible (see other-licenses/)
* Python that has good reason to remain close to its "owning" (Mozilla)
  module (e.g. it is only being consumed from there).
