Bug 1518639: Break out the remote server pieces from nsRemoteService and deCOMtaminate. r=jimm This code is only ever used from c++ so does not need to be an XPCOM component. Broken out a single nsRemoteService that is responsible for choosing the server implementation to use. Differential Revision:
