/**
 * Content Preferences
 *
 * Content preferences allow the application to associate arbitrary data, or
 * "preferences", with specific domains, or web "content".  Specifically, a
 * content preference is a structure with three values: a domain with which the
 * preference is associated, a name that identifies the preference within its
 * domain, and a value.  (See nsIContentPref below.)
 *
 * For example, if you want to remember the user's preference for a certain zoom
 * level on www.mozilla.org pages, you might store a preference whose domain is
 * "www.mozilla.org", whose name is "zoomLevel", and whose value is the numeric
 * zoom level.
 *
 * A preference need not have a domain, and in that case the preference is
 * called a "global" preference.  This interface doesn't impart any special
 * significance to global preferences; they're simply name-value pairs that
 * aren't associated with any particular domain.  As a consumer of this
 * interface, you might choose to let a global preference override all non-
 * global preferences of the same name, for example, for whatever definition of
 * "override" is appropriate for your use case.
 *
 *
 * Domain Parameters
 *
 * Many methods of this interface accept a "domain" parameter.  Domains may be
 * specified either exactly, like "example.com", or as full URLs, like
 * "http://example.com/foo/bar".  In the latter case the API extracts the full
 * domain from the URL, so if you specify "http://foo.bar.example.com/baz", the
 * domain is taken to be "foo.bar.example.com", not "example.com".
 *
 *
 * Private-Browsing Context Parameters
 *
 * Many methods also accept a "context" parameter.  This parameter relates to
 * private browsing and determines the kind of storage that a method uses,
 * either the usual permanent storage or temporary storage set aside for private
 * browsing sessions.
 *
 * Pass null to unconditionally use permanent storage.  Pass an nsILoadContext
 * to use storage appropriate to the context's usePrivateBrowsing attribute: if
 * usePrivateBrowsing is true, temporary private-browsing storage is used, and
 * otherwise permanent storage is used.  A context can be obtained from the
 * window or channel whose content pertains to the preferences being modified or
 * retrieved.
 *
 *
 * Callbacks
 *
 * The methods of callback objects are always called asynchronously.
 *
 * Observers are called after callbacks are called, but they are called in the
 * same turn of the event loop as callbacks.
 *
 * See nsIContentPrefCallback2 below for more information about callbacks.
