/**
 * nsIInputStreamPump
 *
 * This interface provides a means to configure and use a input stream pump
 * instance.  The input stream pump will asynchronously read from an input
 * stream, and push data to an nsIStreamListener instance.  It utilizes the
 * current thread's nsIEventTarget in order to make reading from the stream
 * asynchronous. A different thread can be used if the pump also implements
 * nsIThreadRetargetableRequest.
 *
 * If the given stream supports nsIAsyncInputStream, then the stream pump will
 * call the stream's AsyncWait method to drive the stream listener.  Otherwise,
 * the stream will be read on a background thread utilizing the stream
 * transport service.  More details are provided below.
