// RAII helper class that serializes an nsIInputStream into an IPCStream struct.
// Any file descriptor or PSendStream actors are automatically managed
// correctly.
//
// Here is a simple example:
//
//  // in ipdl file
//  Protocol PMyStuff
//  {
//  parent:
//    async DoStuff(IPCStream aStream);
//  child:
//    async StuffDone(IPCStream aStream);
//  };
//
//  // in child c++ code
//  void CallDoStuff(PMyStuffChild* aActor, nsIInputStream* aStream)
//  {
//    AutoIPCStream autoStream;
//    autoStream.Serialize(aStream, aActor->Manager());
//    aActor->SendDoStuff(autoStream.TakeValue());
//  }
//
//  // in parent c++ code
//  bool
//  MyStuffParent::RecvDoStuff(const IPCStream& aIPCStream) {
//    nsCOMPtr<nsIInputStream> stream = DeserializeIPCStream(aIPCStream);
//    // Do something with stream...
//
//    // You can also serialize streams from parent-to-child as long as
//    // they don't require PSendStream actor support.
//    AutoIPCStream anotherStream;
//    anotherStream.Serialize(mFileStream, Manager());
//    SendStuffDone(anotherStream.TakeValue());
//  }
//
// The AutoIPCStream RAII class may also be used if your stream is embedded
// in a more complex IPDL structure.  In this case you attach the AutoIPCStream
// to the embedded IPCStream and call TakeValue() after you pass the structure.
// For example:
//
//  // in ipdl file
//  struct Stuff
//  {
//    IPCStream stream;
//    nsCString name;
//  };
//
//  Protocol PMyStuff
//  {
//  parent:
//    async DoStuff(Stuff aStream);
//  };
//
//  // in child c++ code
//  void CallDoStuff(PMyStuffChild* aActor, nsIInputStream* aStream)
//  {
//    Stuff stuff;
//    AutoIPCStream autoStream(stuff.stream()); // attach to IPCStream here
//    autoStream.Serialize(aStream, aActor->Manager());
//    aActor->SendDoStuff(stuff);
//    autoStream.TakeValue();                   // call take value after send
//  }
//
//  // in parent c++ code
//  bool
//  MyStuffParent::RecvDoStuff(const Stuff& aStuff) {
//    nsCOMPtr<nsIInputStream> stream = DeserializeIPCStream(aStuff.stream());
//    /* do something with the nsIInputStream */
//  }
//
// The AutoIPCStream class also supports OptionalIPCStream values.  As long as
// you did not initialize the object with a non-optional IPCStream, you can call
// TakeOptionalValue() instead.
//
// The AutoIPCStream class can also be used to serialize nsIInputStream objects
// on the parent side to send to the child.  Currently, however, this only
// works for directly serializable stream types.  The PSendStream actor mechanism
// is not supported in this direction yet.
//
// Like SerializeInputStream(), the AutoIPCStream will crash if
// serialization cannot be completed.
//
// NOTE: This is not a MOZ_STACK_CLASS so that it can be more easily integrated
//       with complex ipdl structures.  For example, you may want to create an
//       array of RAII AutoIPCStream objects or build your own wrapping
//       RAII object to handle other actors that need to be cleaned up.
