 * This module provides the DownloadPaths object which contains methods for
 * giving names and paths to files being downloaded.
 * List of methods:
 * nsILocalFile
 * createNiceUniqueFile(nsILocalFile aLocalFile)
 * [string base, string ext]
 * splitBaseNameAndExtension(string aLeafName)

   * Creates a uniquely-named file starting from the name of the provided file.
   * If a file with the provided name already exists, the function attempts to
   * create nice alternatives, like "base(1).ext" (instead of "base-1.ext").
   * If a unique name cannot be found, the function throws the XPCOM exception
   * can also be expected.
   * @param aTemplateFile
   *        nsILocalFile whose leaf name is going to be used as a template. The
   *        provided object is not modified.
   * @returns A new instance of an nsILocalFile object pointing to the newly
   *          created empty file. On platforms that support permission bits, the
   *          file is created with permissions 600.

    // file with the name we chose, if it is valid. If not, createUnique will
    // attempt to modify it again, for example it will shorten very long names
    // that can't be created on some platforms, and for which a normal call to
    // nsIFile.create would result in NS_ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND. This can result
    // very rarely in strange names like "base(9999).tar-1.gz" or "ba-1.gz".

   * Separates the base name from the extension in a file name, recognizing some
   *  double extensions like ".tar.gz".
   * @param aLeafName
   *        The full leaf name to be parsed. Be careful when processing names
   *        containing leading or trailing dots or spaces.
   * @returns [base, ext]
   *          The base name of the file, which can be empty, and its extension,
   *          which always includes the leading dot unless it's an empty string.
   *          Concatenating the two items always results in the original name.

    //                           double extension.
    //  \.(?:gz|bz2|Z)           The second part of common double extensions.
