 * The XUL store is used to store information related to a XUL document/application.

 * XULStore.jsm wraps this API in useful abstractions for JS consumers.
 * XULStore.h provides a more idiomatic API for C++ consumers.
 * You should use those APIs unless you have good reasons to use this one.

 * If MOZ_NEW_XULSTORE is disabled:
 * The data is serialized to [profile directory]/xulstore.json
