/**
 * Interfaces for overriding the built-in drag, drop, copy, and paste
 * implementations in the content area and editors. Use this to do things
 * such as prevent a drag from starting, adding or removing
 * data and flavors, or preventing the drop.
 *
 * Embedders who want to have these hooks made available should implement
 * nsIClipboardDragDropHooks and use the command manager to send the
 * appropriate commands with these parameters/settings: 
 *      command:  cmd_clipboardDragDropHook
 *
 *      params        value type   possible values
 *      "addhook"     isupports    nsIClipboardDragDropHooks as nsISupports
 *      "removehook"  isupports    nsIClipboardDragDropHooks as nsISupports
 *
 * Notes:
 *  * Overrides/hooks need to be added to each window (as appropriate).
 *    Adding them to the first window does not enable them for every window.
 *  * If more than one implementation is set for a window, the hooks will be
 *    called in the order they are added.
 *  * Adding the same hook to the same window will not add a second call.
 *    Each hook can only be called once per user action/api.
 *  * Not all hooks are guaranteed to be called.  If there are multiple hooks
 *    set for a window, any of them has an opportunity to cancel the action
 *    so no further processing will occur.
 *  * If any errors occur (without setting the boolean result) the default
 *    action will occur.
 *  * AllowDrop will be called MANY times during drag so ensure that it is
 *    efficient.
