interface nsIStreamListener;

 * A channel implementing this interface allows one to intercept its data by
 * inserting intermediate stream listeners.

interface nsITraceableChannel : nsISupports
     * Replace the channel's listener with a new one, and return the listener 
     * the channel used to have. The new listener intercepts OnStartRequest, 
     * OnDataAvailable and OnStopRequest calls and must pass them to 
     * the original listener after examination. If multiple callers replace 
     * the channel's listener, a chain of listeners is created.
     * The caller of setNewListener has no way to control at which place 
     * in the chain its listener is placed.
     * Note: The caller of setNewListener must not delay passing 
     * OnStartRequest to the original listener.
     * Note2: A channel may restrict when the listener can be replaced.
     * It is not recommended to allow listener replacement after OnStartRequest
     * has been called.
