/*
 * Moving GC Stack Rooting
 *
 * A moving GC may change the physical location of GC allocated things, even
 * when they are rooted, updating all pointers to the thing to refer to its new
 * location. The GC must therefore know about all live pointers to a thing,
 * not just one of them, in order to behave correctly.
 *
 * The classes below are used to root stack locations whose value may be held
 * live across a call that can trigger GC (i.e. a call which might allocate any
 * GC things). For a code fragment such as:
 *
 * Foo();
 * ... = obj->lastProperty();
 *
 * If Foo() can trigger a GC, the stack location of obj must be rooted to
 * ensure that the GC does not move the JSObject referred to by obj without
 * updating obj's location itself. This rooting must happen regardless of
 * whether there are other roots which ensure that the object itself will not
 * be collected.
 *
 * If Foo() cannot trigger a GC, and the same holds for all other calls made
 * between obj's definitions and its last uses, then no rooting is required.
 *
 * Several classes are available for rooting stack locations. All are templated
 * on the type T of the value being rooted, for which RootMethods<T> must
 * have an instantiation.
 *
 * - Rooted<T> declares a variable of type T, whose value is always rooted.
 *   Rooted<T> may be automatically coerced to a Handle<T>, below. Rooted<T>
 *   should be used whenever a local variable's value may be held live across a
 *   call which can allocate GC things or otherwise trigger a GC.
 *
 * - Handle<T> is a const reference to a Rooted<T>. Functions which take GC
 *   things or values as arguments and need to root those arguments should
 *   generally use handles for those arguments and avoid any explicit rooting.
 *   This has two benefits. First, when several such functions call each other
 *   then redundant rooting of multiple copies of the GC thing can be avoided.
 *   Second, if the caller does not pass a rooted value a compile error will be
 *   generated, which is quicker and easier to fix than when relying on a
 *   separate rooting analysis.
