// An output stream so you can read your potentially-async input stream into
// a contiguous buffer in the form of an nsCString using NS_AsyncCopy.
// Back when streams were more synchronous and people didn't know blocking I/O
// was bad, if you wanted to read a stream into a flat buffer, you could use
// NS_ReadInputStreamToString/NS_ReadInputStreamToBuffer.  But those don't work
// with async streams. This can be used to replace hand-rolled Read/AsyncWait()
// loops.  Because you specify the expected size up front, the nsCString buffer
// is pre-allocated so wasteful reallocations can be avoided.  However,
// nsCString currently may over-allocate and this can be problematic on 32-bit
// windows until we're rid of that build configuration.
