 * MOZ_EXPORT_API is used to declare and define a method which is externally
 * visible to users of the current library.  It encapsulates various decorations
 * needed to properly export the method's symbol.  MOZ_EXPORT_DATA serves the
 * same purpose for data.
 *
 *   api.h:
 *     extern MOZ_EXPORT_API(int) MeaningOfLife(void);
 *     extern MOZ_EXPORT_DATA(int) LuggageCombination;
 *
 *   api.c:
 *     MOZ_EXPORT_API(int) MeaningOfLife(void) { return 42; }
 *     MOZ_EXPORT_DATA(int) LuggageCombination = 12345;
 *
 * If you are merely sharing a method across files, just use plain |extern|.
 * These macros are designed for use by library interfaces -- not for normal
 * methods or data used cross-file.
