// This class is used by IPDL to share file descriptors across processes. When
// sending a FileDescriptor IPDL will first duplicate a platform-specific file
// handle type ('PlatformHandleType') into a handle that is valid in the other
// process. Then IPDL will convert the duplicated handle into a type suitable
// for pickling ('PickleType') and then send that through the IPC pipe. In the
// receiving process the pickled data is converted into a platform-specific file
// handle and then returned to the receiver.
//
// To use this class add 'FileDescriptor' as an argument in the IPDL protocol
// and then pass a file descriptor from C++ to the Call/Send method. The
// Answer/Recv method will receive a FileDescriptor& on which PlatformHandle()
// can be called to return the platform file handle.
