//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
// nsISMILType: Interface for defining the basic operations needed for animating
// a particular kind of data (e.g. lengths, colors, transformation matrices).
//
// This interface is never used directly but always through an nsSMILValue that
// bundles together a pointer to a concrete implementation of this interface and
// the data upon which it should operate.
//
// We keep the data and type separate rather than just providing different
// subclasses of nsSMILValue. This is so that sizeof(nsSMILValue) is the same
// for all value types, allowing us to have a type-agnostic nsTArray of
// nsSMILValue objects (actual objects, not pointers). It also allows most
// nsSMILValues (except those that need to allocate extra memory for their
// data) to be allocated on the stack and directly assigned to one another
// provided performance benefits for the animation code.
//
// Note that different types have different capabilities. Roughly speaking there
// are probably three main types:
//
// +---------------------+---------------+-------------+------------------+
// | CATEGORY:           | DISCRETE      | LINEAR      | ADDITIVE         |
// +---------------------+---------------+-------------+------------------+
// | Example:            | strings,      | path data?  | lengths,         |
// |                     | color k/words?|             | RGB color values |
// |                     |               |             |                  |
// | -- Assign?          |     X         |    X        |    X             |
// | -- Add?             |     -         |    X?       |    X             |
// | -- SandwichAdd?     |     -         |    -?       |    X             |
// | -- ComputeDistance? |     -         |    -        |    X?            |
// | -- Interpolate?     |     -         |    X        |    X             |
