/**
 * A class for representing string return values.  This can be either passed to
 * callees that have an nsString or nsAString out param or passed to a callee
 * that actually knows about this class and can work with it.  Such a callee may
 * call these setters:
 *
 *   SetKnownLiveStringBuffer
 *   SetStringBuffer
 *   SetKnownLiveString
 *   SetKnownLiveAtom
 *   SetNull
 *
 * to assign a value to the DOMString without instantiating an actual nsString
 * in the process, or use AsAString() to instantiate an nsString and work with
 * it.  These options are mutually exclusive!  Don't do more than one of them.
 *
 * It's only OK to call
 * SetKnownLiveStringBuffer/SetKnownLiveString/SetKnownLiveAtom if the caller of
 * the method in question plans to keep holding a strong ref to the stringbuffer
 * involved, whether it's a raw nsStringBuffer, or stored inside the string or
 * atom being passed.  In the string/atom cases that means the caller must own
 * the string or atom, and not mutate it (in the string case) for the lifetime
 * of the DOMString.
 *
 * The proper way to extract a value is to check IsNull().  If not null, then
 * check IsEmpty().  If neither of those is true, check HasStringBuffer().  If
 * that's true, call StringBuffer()/StringBufferLength().  If HasStringBuffer()
 * returns false, check HasLiteral, and if that returns true call
 * Literal()/LiteralLength().  If HasLiteral() is false, call AsAString() and
 * get the value from that.
