 * MOZ_EXPORT is used to declare and define a symbol or type which is externally
 * visible to users of the current library.  It encapsulates various decorations
 * needed to properly export the method's symbol.
 *
 *   api.h:
 *     extern MOZ_EXPORT int MeaningOfLife(void);
 *     extern MOZ_EXPORT int LuggageCombination;
 *
 *   api.c:
 *     int MeaningOfLife(void) { return 42; }
 *     int LuggageCombination = 12345;
 *
 * If you are merely sharing a method across files, just use plain |extern|.
 * These macros are designed for use by library interfaces -- not for normal
 * methods or data used cross-file.
