class PBackgroundChild;

// This class allows access to the PBackground protocol. PBackground allows
// communication between any thread (in the parent or a child process) and a
// single background thread in the parent process. Each PBackgroundChild
// instance is tied to the thread on which it is created and must not be shared
// across threads. Each PBackgroundChild is unique and valid as long as its
// designated thread lives.
//
// Creation of PBackground is synchronous. GetOrCreateForCurrentThread will
// create the actor if it doesn't exist yet. Thereafter (assuming success)
// GetForCurrentThread() will return the same actor every time.
//
// GetOrCreateSocketActorForCurrentThread, which is like
// GetOrCreateForCurrentThread, is used to get or create PBackground actor
// between child process and socket process.
//
// CloseForCurrentThread() will close the current PBackground actor.  Subsequent
// calls to GetForCurrentThread will return null.  CloseForCurrentThread() may
// only be called exactly once for each thread-specific actor.  Currently it is
// illegal to call this before the PBackground actor has been created.
//
// The PBackgroundChild actor and all its sub-protocol actors will be
// automatically destroyed when its designated thread completes.
