/**
 * This class encapsulates an "agile reference." These are references that
 * allow you to pass COM interfaces between apartments. When you have an
 * interface that you would like to pass between apartments, you wrap that
 * interface in an AgileReference and pass the agile reference instead. Then
 * you unwrap the interface by calling AgileReference::Resolve.
 *
 * Sample usage:
 *
 * // In the multithreaded apartment, foo is an IFoo*
 * auto myAgileRef = MakeUnique<AgileReference>(IID_IFoo, foo);
 *
 * // myAgileRef is passed to our main thread, which runs in a single-threaded
 * // apartment:
 *
 * RefPtr<IFoo> foo;
 * HRESULT hr = myAgileRef->Resolve(IID_IFoo, getter_AddRefs(foo));
 * // Now foo may be called from the main thread
