 * A session history listener will be notified when pages are added, removed
 * and loaded from session history. It can prevent any action (except adding
 * a new session history entry) from happening by returning false from the
 * corresponding callback method.
 *
 * A session history listener can be registered on a particular nsISHistory
 * instance via the nsISHistory::addSHistoryListener() method.
