/**
 * StaticAutoPtr and StaticRefPtr are like nsAutoPtr and nsRefPtr, except they
 * are suitable for use as global variables.
 *
 * In particular, a global instance of Static{Auto,Ref}Ptr doesn't cause the
 * compiler to emit  a static initializer (in release builds, anyway).
 *
 * In order to accomplish this, Static{Auto,Ref}Ptr must have a trivial
 * constructor and destructor.  As a consequence, it cannot initialize its raw
 * pointer to 0 on construction, and it cannot delete/release its raw pointer
 * upon destruction.
 *
 * Since the compiler guarantees that all global variables are initialized to
 * 0, these trivial constructors are safe, so long as you use
 * Static{Auto,Ref}Ptr as a global variable.  If you use Static{Auto,Ref}Ptr as
 * a stack variable or as a class instance variable, you will get what you
 * deserve.
 *
 * Static{Auto,Ref}Ptr have a limited interface as compared to ns{Auto,Ref}Ptr;
 * this is intentional, since their range of acceptable uses is smaller.
