/**
 * MOZ_ENUM_TYPE specifies the underlying numeric type for an enum.  It's
 * specified by placing MOZ_ENUM_TYPE(type) immediately after the enum name in
 * its declaration, and before the opening curly brace, like
 *
 *   enum MyEnum MOZ_ENUM_TYPE(uint16_t)
 *   {
 *     A,
 *     B = 7,
 *     C
 *   };
 *
 * In supporting compilers, the macro will expand to ": uint16_t".  The
 * compiler will allocate exactly two bytes for MyEnum and will require all
 * enumerators to have values between 0 and 65535.  (Thus specifying "B =
 * 100000" instead of "B = 7" would fail to compile.)  In old compilers the
 * macro expands to the empty string, and the underlying type is generally
 * undefined.

/**
 * MOZ_BEGIN_ENUM_CLASS and MOZ_END_ENUM_CLASS provide access to the
 * strongly-typed enumeration feature of C++11 ("enum class").  If supported
 * by the compiler, an enum defined using these macros will not be implicitly
 * converted to any other type, and its enumerators will be scoped using the
 * enumeration name.  Place MOZ_BEGIN_ENUM_CLASS(EnumName, type) in place of
 * "enum EnumName {", and MOZ_END_ENUM_CLASS(EnumName) in place of the closing
 * "};".  For example,
 *
 *   MOZ_BEGIN_ENUM_CLASS(Enum, int32_t)
 *     A,
 *     B = 6
 *   MOZ_END_ENUM_CLASS(Enum)
 *
 * This will make "Enum::A" and "Enum::B" appear in the global scope, but "A"
 * and "B" will not.  In compilers that support C++11 strongly-typed
 * enumerations, implicit conversions of Enum values to numeric types will
 * fail.  In other compilers, Enum itself will actually be defined as a class,
 * and some implicit conversions will fail while others will succeed.
 *
 * The type argument specifies the underlying type for the enum where
 * supported, as with MOZ_ENUM_TYPE().  For simplicity, it is currently
 * mandatory.  As with MOZ_ENUM_TYPE(), it will do nothing on compilers that do
 * not support it.
 *
 * MOZ_{BEGIN,END}_ENUM_CLASS doesn't work for defining enum classes nested
 * inside classes.  To define an enum class nested inside another class, use
 * MOZ_{BEGIN,END}_NESTED_ENUM_CLASS, and place a MOZ_FINISH_NESTED_ENUM_CLASS
 * in namespace scope to handle bits that can only be implemented with
 * namespace-scoped code.  For example:
 *
 *   class FooBar {
 *
 *     MOZ_BEGIN_NESTED_ENUM_CLASS(Enum, int32_t)
 *       A,
 *       B = 6
 *     MOZ_END_NESTED_ENUM_CLASS(Enum)
 *
 *   };
 *
 *   MOZ_FINISH_NESTED_ENUM_CLASS(FooBar::Enum)

   /**
    * We need Name to both name a type, and scope the provided enumerator
    * names.  Namespaces and classes both provide scoping, but namespaces
    * aren't types, so we need to use a class that wraps the enum values.  We
    * have an implicit conversion from the inner enum type to the class, so
    * statements like
    *
    *   Enum x = Enum::A;
    *
    * will still work.  We need to define an implicit conversion from the class
    * to the inner enum as well, so that (for instance) switch statements will
    * work.  This means that the class can be implicitly converted to a numeric
    * value as well via the enum type, since C++ allows an implicit
    * user-defined conversion followed by a standard conversion to still be
    * implicit.
    *
    * We have an explicit constructor from int defined, so that casts like
    * (Enum)7 will still work.  We also have a zero-argument constructor with
    * no arguments, so declaration without initialization (like "Enum foo;")
    * will work.
    *
    * Additionally, we'll delete as many operators as possible for the inner
    * enum type, so statements like this will still fail:
    *
    *   f(5 + Enum::B); // deleted operator+
    *
    * But we can't prevent things like this, because C++ doesn't allow
    * overriding conversions or assignment operators for enums:
    *
    *   int x = Enum::A;
    *   int f()
    *   {
    *     return Enum::A;
