/** @brief This interface gives access to actions that can be executed
  for accessible objects.
 Every accessible object that can be manipulated beyond its methods
  exported over the accessibility API should support this interface to
  expose all actions that it can perform.  Each action can be performed
  or queried for a name, description or associated key bindings.  Actions
  are needed more for ATs that assist the mobility impaired.  By providing 
  actions directly, the AT can present them to the user without the user having
  to perform the extra steps to navigate a context menu.

  /** @brief Returns the number of accessible actions available in this object.
   If there are more than one, the first one is considered the
    "default" action of the object.
   @param [out] nActions
    The returned value of the number of actions is zero if there are
    no actions.
  HRESULT nActions
     [out,retval] long* nActions

  /** @brief Performs the specified Action on the object.
   @param [in] actionIndex
    This index specifies the action to perform.  If it lies outside
    the valid range no action is performed.

  /** @brief Returns a description of the specified action of the object.
   @param [in] actionIndex
    This index specifies the action of which to return a
    description.  If it lies outside the valid range an empty string
    is returned.
   @param [out] description
    The returned value is a localized string of the specified action.

  /** @brief Returns an array of BSTRs describing one or more key bindings, if there
   are any, associated with the specified action.

   Note: the client allocates and passes in an array of pointers.  The server
   allocates the BSTRs and passes back one or more pointers to these BSTRs into
   the array of pointers allocated by the client.  The client is responsible 
   for deallocating the BSTRs.

   @param [in] actionIndex
    This index specifies the action of which to return the key bindings.
   @param [in] nMaxBinding
    The maximum number of keybindings requested, i.e. the size of the array 
	allocated to hold the results.
   @param [out] keyBinding
    An array of BSTRs, one for each key binding.
   @param [out] nBinding
    The actual number of key bindings returned.
