// This class allows access to the PBackground protocol. PBackground allows
// communication between any thread (in the parent or a child process) and a
// single background thread in the parent process. Each PBackgroundChild
// instance is tied to the thread on which it is created and must not be shared
// across threads. Each PBackgroundChild is unique and valid as long as its
// designated thread lives.
//
// Creation of PBackground is asynchronous. GetForCurrentThread() will return
// null until the sequence is complete. GetOrCreateForCurrentThread() will start
// the creation sequence and will call back via the
// nsIIPCBackgroundChildCreateCallback interface when completed. Thereafter
// (assuming success) GetForCurrentThread() will return the same actor every
// time.
//
// The PBackgroundChild actor and all its sub-protocol actors will be
// automatically destroyed when its designated thread completes.
