**| that might exceed the specified size, mdbYarn_mGrow is a caller-
**| supplied means of letting a callee attempt to increase the string
**| size to become large enough to receive all content available.
**|
**|| Grow(): a method for requesting that a yarn instance be made
**| larger in size.  Note that such requests need not be honored, and
**| need not be honored in full if only partial size growth is desired.
**| (Note that no nsIMdbEnv instance is passed as argument, although one
**| might be needed in some circumstances.  So if an nsIMdbEnv is needed,
**| a reference to one might be held inside a mdbYarn member slot.)
**|
**|| self: a yarn instance to be grown.  Presumably this yarn is
**| the instance which holds the mYarn_Grow method pointer.  Yarn
**| instancesshould only be passed to grow methods which they were
**| specifically designed to fit, as indicated by the mYarn_Grow slot.
**|
**|| inNewSize: the new desired value for slot mYarn_Size in self.
**| If mYarn_Size is already this big, then nothing should be done.
**| If inNewSize is larger than seems feasible or desirable to honor,
**| then any size restriction policy can be used to grow to some size
**| greater than mYarn_Size.  (Grow() might even grow to a size
**| greater than inNewSize in order to make the increase in size seem
**| worthwhile, rather than growing in many smaller steps over time.)
|*/
typedef void (* mdbYarn_mGrow)(mdbYarn* self, mdb_size inNewSize);
// mdbYarn_mGrow methods must be declared with C linkage in C++

/*| mdbYarn: a variable length "string" of arbitrary binary bytes,
**| whose length is mYarn_Fill, inside a buffer mYarn_Buf that has
**| at most mYarn_Size byte of physical space.
**|
**|| mYarn_Buf: a pointer to space containing content.  This slot
**| might never be nil when mYarn_Size is nonzero, but checks for nil
**| are recommended anyway.
**| (Implementations of mdbYarn_mGrow methods should take care to
**| ensure the existence of a replacement before dropping old Bufs.)
**| Content in Buf can be anything in any format, but the mYarn_Form
**| implies the actual format by some caller-to-callee convention.
**| mYarn_Form==0 implies US-ASCII iso-8859-1 Latin1 string content.
**|
**|| mYarn_Size: the physical size of Buf in bytes.  Note that if one
**| intends to terminate a string with a null byte, that it must not
**| be written at or after mYarn_Buf[mYarn_Size] because this is after
**| the last byte in the physical buffer space.  Size can be zero,
**| which means the string has no content whatsoever; note that when
**| Size is zero, this is a suitable reason for Buf==nil as well.
**|
**|| mYarn_Fill: the logical content in Buf in bytes, where Fill must
**| never exceed mYarn_Size.  Note that yarn strings might not have a
**| terminating null byte (since they might not even be C strings), but
**| when they do, such terminating nulls are considered part of content
**| and therefore Fill will count such null bytes.  So an "empty" C
**| string will have Fill==1, because content includes one null byte.
**| Fill does not mean "length" when applied to C strings for this
**| reason.  However, clients using yarns to hold C strings can infer
**| that length is equal to Fill-1 (but should take care to handle the
**| case where Fill==0).  To be paranoid, one can always copy to a
**| destination with size exceeding Fill, and place a redundant null
**| byte in the Fill position when this simplifies matters.
**|
**|| mYarn_Form: a designation of content format within mYarn_Buf.
**| The semantics of this slot are the least well defined, since the
**| actual meaning is context dependent, to the extent that callers
**| and callees must agree on format encoding conventions when such
**| are not standardized in many computing contexts.  However, in the
**| context of a specific mdb database, mYarn_Form is a token for an
**| atomized string in that database that typically names a preferred
**| mime type charset designation.  If and when mdbYarn is used for
**| other purposes away from the mdb interface, folks can use another
**| convention system for encoding content formats.  However, in all
**| contexts is it useful to maintain the convention that Form==0
**| implies Buf contains US-ASCII iso-8859-1 Latin1 string content.
**|
**|| mYarn_Grow: either a mdbYarn_mGrow method, or else nil.  When
**| a mdbYarn_mGrow method is provided, this method can be used to
**| request a yarn buf size increase.  A caller who constructs the 
**| original mdbYarn instance decides whether a grow method is necessary
**| or desirable, and uses only grow methods suitable for the buffering
**| nature of a specific mdbYarn instance.  (For example, Buf might be a
**| staticly allocated string space which switches to something heap-based
**| when grown, and subsequent calls to grow the yarn must distinguish the
**| original static string from heap allocated space, etc.) Note that the
**| method stored in mYarn_Grow can change, and this might be a common way
**| to track memory managent changes in policy for mYarn_Buf.

/*| nsIMdbFactory: the main entry points to the abstract db interface.  A DLL
**| that supports this mdb interface need only have a single exported method
**| that will return an instance of nsIMdbFactory, so that further methods in
**| the suite can be accessed from objects returned by nsIMdbFactory methods.
**|
**|| mdbYarn: note all nsIMdbFactory subclasses must guarantee null
**| termination of all strings written into mdbYarn instances, as long as
**| mYarn_Size and mYarn_Buf are nonzero.  Even truncated string values must
**| be null terminated.  This is more strict behavior than mdbYarn requires,
**| but it is part of the nsIMdbFactory interface.
**|
**|| envs: an environment instance is required as per-thread context for
**| most of the db method calls, so nsIMdbFactory creates such instances.
**|
**|| rows: callers must be able to create row instances that are independent
**| of storage space that is part of the db content graph.  Many interfaces
**| for data exchange have strictly copy semantics, so that a row instance
**| has no specific identity inside the db content model, and the text in
**| cells are an independenty copy of unexposed content inside the db model.
**| Callers are expected to maintain one or more row instances as a buffer
**| for staging cell content copied into or out of a table inside the db.
**| Callers are urged to use an instance of nsIMdbRow created by the nsIMdbFactory
**| code suite, because reading and writing might be much more efficient than
**| when using a hand-rolled nsIMdbRow subclass with no relation to the suite.
**|
**|| ports: a port is a readonly interface to a specific database file. Most
**| of the methods to access a db file are suitable for a readonly interface,
**| so a port is the basic minimum for accessing content.  This makes it
**| possible to read other external formats for import purposes, without
**| needing the code or competence necessary to write every such format.  So
**| we can write generic import code just once, as long as every format can
**| show a face based on nsIMdbPort. (However, same suite import can be faster.)
**| Given a file name and the first 512 bytes of a file, a factory can say if
**| a port can be opened by this factory.  Presumably an app maintains chains
**| of factories for different suites, and asks each in turn about opening a
**| a prospective file for reading (as a port) or writing (as a store).  I'm
**| not ready to tackle issues of format fidelity and factory chain ordering.
**|
**|| stores: a store is a mutable interface to a specific database file, and
**| includes the port interface plus any methods particular to writing, which
**| are few in number.  Presumably the set of files that can be opened as
**| stores is a subset of the set of files that can be opened as ports.  A
**| new store can be created with CreateNewFileStore() by supplying a new
**| file name which does not yet exist (callers are always responsible for
**| destroying any existing files before calling this method).

/*| nsIMdbPort: a readonly interface to a specific database file. The mutable
**| nsIMdbStore interface is a subclass that includes writing behavior, but
**| most of the needed db methods appear in the readonly nsIMdbPort interface.
**|
**|| mdbYarn: note all nsIMdbPort and nsIMdbStore subclasses must guarantee null
**| termination of all strings written into mdbYarn instances, as long as
**| mYarn_Size and mYarn_Buf are nonzero.  Even truncated string values must
**| be null terminated.  This is more strict behavior than mdbYarn requires,
**| but it is part of the nsIMdbPort and nsIMdbStore interface.
**|
**|| attributes: methods are provided to distinguish a readonly port from a
**| mutable store, and whether a mutable store actually has any dirty content.
**|
**|| filepath: the file path used to open the port from the nsIMdbFactory can be
**| queried and discovered by GetPortFilePath(), which includes format info.
**|
**|| export: a port can write itself in other formats, with perhaps a typical
**| emphasis on text interchange formats used by other systems.  A port can be
**| queried to determine its preferred export interchange format, and a port
**| can be queried to see whether a specific export format is supported.  And
**| actually exporting a port requires a new destination file name and format.
**|
**|| tokens: a port supports queries about atomized strings to map tokens to
**| strings or strings to token integers.  (All atomized strings must be in
**| US-ASCII iso-8859-1 Latin1 charset encoding.)  When a port is actually a
**| mutable store and a string has not yet been atomized, then StringToToken()
**| will actually do so and modify the store.  The QueryToken() method will not
**| atomize a string if it has not already been atomized yet, even in stores.
**|
**|| tables: other than string tokens, all port content is presented through
**| tables, which are ordered collections of rows.  Tables are identified by
**| row scope and table kind, which might or might not be unique in a port,
**| depending on app convention.  When tables are effectively unique, then
**| queries for specific scope and kind pairs will find those tables.  To see
**| all tables that match specific row scope and table kind patterns, even in
**| the presence of duplicates, every port supports a GetPortTableCursor()
**| method that returns an iterator over all matching tables.  Table kind is
**| considered scoped inside row scope, so passing a zero for table kind will
**| find all table kinds for some nonzero row scope.  Passing a zero for row
**| scope will iterate over all tables in the port, in some undefined order.
**| (A new table can be added to a port using nsIMdbStore::NewTable(), even when
**| the requested scope and kind combination is already used by other tables.)
**|
**|| memory: callers can request that a database use less memory footprint in
**| several flavors, from an inconsequential idle flavor to a rather drastic
**| panic flavor. Callers might perform an idle purge very frequently if desired
**| with very little cost, since only normally scheduled memory management will
**| be conducted, such as freeing resources for objects scheduled to be dropped.
**| Callers should perform session memory purges infrequently because they might
**| involve costly scanning of data structures to removed cached content, and
**| session purges are recommended only when a caller experiences memory crunch.
**| Callers should only rarely perform a panic purge, in response to dire memory
**| straits, since this is likely to make db operations much more expensive
**| than they would be otherwise.  A panic purge asks a database to free as much
**| memory as possible while staying effective and operational, because a caller
**| thinks application failure might otherwise occur.  (Apps might better close
**| an open db, so panic purges only make sense when a db is urgently needed.)

  // identical to the blob described by yarn inTargetCellValue.  Both content
  // and form of the yarn must be an exact match to find a matching row.
  //
  // (In other words, both a yarn's blob bytes and form are significant.  The
  // form is not expected to vary in columns used for identity anyway.  This
  // is intended to make the cost of FindRow() cheaper for MDB implementors,
  // since any cell value atomization performed internally must necessarily
  // make yarn form significant in order to avoid data loss in atomization.)
  //
  // FindRow() can lazily create an index on attribute inColumn for all rows
  // with that attribute in row space scope inRowScope, so that subsequent
  // calls to FindRow() will perform faster.  Such an index might or might
  // not be persistent (but this seems desirable if it is cheap to do so).
  // Note that lazy index creation in readonly DBs is not very feasible.
  //
  // This FindRow() interface assumes that attribute inColumn is effectively
  // an alternative means of unique identification for a row in a rowspace,
  // so correct behavior is only guaranteed when no duplicates for this col
  // appear in the given set of rows.  (If more than one row has the same cell
  // value in this column, no more than one will be found; and cutting one of
  // two duplicate rows can cause the index to assume no other such row lives
  // in the row space, so future calls return nil for negative search results
  // even though some duplicate row might still live within the rowspace.)
  //
  // In other words, the FindRow() implementation is allowed to assume simple
  // hash tables mapping unqiue column keys to associated row values will be
  // sufficient, where any duplication is not recorded because only one copy
  // of a given key need be remembered.  Implementors are not required to sort

  // ShouldCompress() returns true if the store can determine that the file

  // CompressCommit() is called, because that percentage of the file seems
  // to be recoverable free space.  The granularity is only in terms of 
  // percentage points, and any value over 100 is considered equal to 100.
  //
  // If a store only has an approximate idea how much space might be saved
  // during a compress, then a best guess should be made.  For example, the
  // Mork implementation might keep track of how much file space began with
  // text content before the first updating transaction, and then consider
  // all content following the start of the first transaction as potentially
  // wasted space if it is all updates and not just new content.  (This is
  // a safe assumption in the sense that behavior will stabilize on a low
  // estimate of wastage after a commit removes all transaction updates.)
  //
  // Some db formats might attempt to keep a very accurate reckoning of free
  // space size, so a very accurate determination can be made.  But other db
  // formats might have difficulty determining size of free space, and might
  // require some lengthy calculation to answer.  This is the reason for
  // passing in the percentage threshold of interest, so that such lengthy
  // computations can terminate early as soon as at least inPercentWaste is
  // found, so that the entire file need not be groveled when unnecessary.
  // However, we hope implementations will always favor fast but imprecise
  // heuristic answers instead of extremely slow but very precise answers.
  //
  // If the outActualWaste parameter is non-nil, it will be used to return
  // the actual estimated space wasted as a percentage of file size.  (This
  // parameter is provided so callers need not call repeatedly with altered
  // inPercentWaste values to isolate the actual wastage figure.)  Note the
  // actual wastage figure returned can exactly equal inPercentWaste even
  // when this grossly underestimates the real figure involved, if the db
  // finds it very expensive to determine the extent of wastage after it is
  // known to at least exceed inPercentWaste.  Note we expect that whenever
  // outShould returns true, that outActualWaste returns >= inPercentWaste.
  //
  // The effect of different inPercentWaste values is not very uniform over
  // the permitted range.  For example, 50 represents 50% wastage, or a file
  // that is about double what it should be ideally.  But 99 represents 99%
  // wastage, or a file that is about ninety-nine times as big as it should
  // be ideally.  In the smaller direction, 25 represents 25% wastage, or
  // a file that is only 33% larger than it should be ideally.
  //
  // Callers can determine what policy they want to use for considering when
  // a file holds too much wasted space, and express this as a percentage
  // of total file size to pass as in the inPercentWaste parameter.  A zero
  // likely returns always trivially true, and 100 always trivially false.
  // The great majority of callers are expected to use values from 25 to 75,
  // since most plausible thresholds for compressing might fall between the
  // extremes of 133% of ideal size and 400% of ideal size.  (Presumably the
  // larger a file gets, the more important the percentage waste involved, so
  // a sliding scale for compress thresholds might use smaller numbers for
  // much bigger file sizes.)

**|| tables: one can force a new table to exist in a store with NewTable()
**| and nonzero values for both row scope and table kind.  (If one wishes only
**| one table of a certain kind, then one might look for it first using the
**| GetTableKind() method).  One can pass inMustBeUnique to force future
**| users of this store to be unable to create other tables with the same pair
**| of scope and kind attributes.  When inMustBeUnique is true, and the table
**| with the given scope and kind pair already exists, then the existing one
**| is returned instead of making a new table.  Similarly, if one passes false
**| for inMustBeUnique, but the table kind has already been marked unique by a
**| previous user of the store, then the existing unique table is returned.
**|
**|| import: all or some of another port's content can be imported by calling
**| AddPortContent() with a row scope identifying the extent of content to
**| be imported.  A zero row scope will import everything.  A nonzero row
**| scope will only import tables with a matching row scope.  Note that one
**| must somehow find a way to negotiate possible conflicts between existing
**| row content and imported row content, and this involves a specific kind of
**| definition for row identity involving either row IDs or unique attributes,
**| or some combination of these two.  At the moment I am just going to wave
**| my hands, and say the default behavior is to assign all new row identities
**| to all imported content, which will result in no merging of content; this
**| must change later because it is unacceptable in some contexts.
**|
**|| commits: to manage modifications in a mutable store, very few methods are
**| really needed to indicate global policy choices that are independent of 
**| the actual modifications that happen in objects at the level of tables,
**| rows, and cells, etc.  The most important policy to specify is which sets
**| of changes are considered associated in a manner such that they should be
**| applied together atomically to a given store.  We call each such group of
**| changes a transaction.  We handle three different grades of transaction,
**| but they differ only in semantic significance to the application, and are
**| not intended to nest.  (If small transactions were nested inside large
**| transactions, that would imply that a single large transaction must be
**| atomic over all the contained small transactions; but actually we intend
**| smalls transaction never be undone once commited due to, say, aborting a
**| transaction of greater significance.)  The small, large, and session level
**| commits have equal granularity, and differ only in risk of loss from the
**| perspective of an application.  Small commits characterize changes that
**| can be lost with relatively small risk, so small transactions can delay
**| until later if they are expensive or impractical to commit.  Large commits
**| involve changes that would probably inconvenience users if lost, so the
**| need to pay costs of writing is rather greater than with small commits.
**| Session commits are last ditch attempts to save outstanding changes before
**| stopping the use of a particular database, so there will be no later point
**| in time to save changes that have been delayed due to possible high cost.
**| If large commits are never delayed, then a session commit has about the
**| same performance effect as another large commit; but if small and large
**| commits are always delayed, then a session commit is likely to be rather
**| expensive as a runtime cost compared to any earlier database usage.
**|
**|| aborts: the only way to abort changes to a store is by closing the store.
**| So there is no specific method for causing any abort.  Stores must discard
**| all changes made that are uncommited when a store is closed.  This design
**| choice makes the implementations of tables, rows, and cells much less
**| complex because they need not maintain a record of undobable changes.  When
**| a store is closed, presumably this precipitates the closure of all tables,
**| rows, and cells in the store as well.   So an application can revert the
**| state of a store in the user interface by quietly closing and reopening a
**| store, because this will discard uncommited changes and show old content.
**| This implies an app that closes a store will need to send a "scramble"
**| event notification to any views that depend on old discarded content.

/*| nsIMdbCollection: an object that collects a set of other objects as members.
**| The main purpose of this base class is to unify the perceived semantics
**| of tables and rows where their collection behavior is similar.  This helps
**| isolate the mechanics of collection behavior from the other semantics that
**| are more characteristic of rows and tables.
**|
**|| count: the number of objects in a collection is the member count. (Some
**| collection interfaces call this attribute the 'size', but that can be a
**| little ambiguous, and counting actual members is harder to confuse.)
**|
**|| seed: the seed of a collection is a counter for changes in membership in
**| a specific collection.  This seed should change when members are added to
**| or removed from a collection, but not when a member changes internal state.
**| The seed should also change whenever the internal collection of members has
**| a complex state change that reorders member positions (say by sorting) that
**| would affect the nature of an iteration over that collection of members.
**| The purpose of a seed is to inform any outstanding collection cursors that
**| they might be stale, without incurring the cost of broadcasting an event
**| notification to such cursors, which would need more data structure support.
**| Presumably a cursor in a particular mdb code suite has much more direct
**| access to a collection seed member slot that this abstract COM interface,
**| so this information is intended more for clients outside mdb that want to
**| make inferences similar to those made by the collection cursors.  The seed
**| value as an integer magnitude is not very important, and callers should not
**| assume meaningful information can be derived from an integer value beyond
**| whether it is equal or different from a previous inspection.  A seed uses
**| integers of many bits in order to make the odds of wrapping and becoming
**| equal to an earlier seed value have probability that is vanishingly small.
**|
**|| port: every collection is associated with a specific database instance.
**|
**|| cursor: a subclass of nsIMdbCursor suitable for this specific collection
**| subclass.  The ability to GetCursor() from the base nsIMdbCollection class
**| is not really as useful as getting a more specifically typed cursor more
**| directly from the base class without any casting involved.  So including
**| this method here is more for conceptual illustration.
**|
**|| oid: every collection has an identity that persists from session to
**| session. Implementations are probably able to distinguish row IDs from
**| table IDs, but we don't specify anything official in this regard.  A
**| collection has the same identity for the lifetime of the collection,
**| unless identity is swapped with another collection by means of a call to
**| BecomeContent(), which is considered a way to swap a new representation
**| for an old well-known object.  (Even so, only content appears to change,
**| while the identity seems to stay the same.)
**|
**|| become: developers can effectively cause two objects to swap identities,
**| in order to effect a complete swap between what persistent content is
**| represented by two oids.  The caller should consider this a content swap,
**| and not identity wap, because identities will seem to stay the same while
**| only content changes.  However, implementations will likely do this
**| internally by swapping identities.  Callers must swap content only
**| between objects of similar type, such as a row with another row, and a
**| table with another table, because implementations need not support
**| cross-object swapping because it might break object name spaces.
**|
**|| dropping: when a caller expects a row or table will no longer be used, the
**| caller can tell the collection to 'drop activity', which means the runtime
**| object can have it's internal representation purged to save memory or any
**| other resource that is being consumed by the collection's representation.
**| This has no effect on the collection's persistent content or semantics,
**| and is only considered a runtime effect.  After a collection drops
**| activity, the object should still be as usable as before (because it has
**| NOT been closed), but further usage can be expensive to re-instate because
**| it might involve reallocating space and/or re-reading disk space.  But
**| since this future usage is not expected, the caller does not expect to
**| pay the extra expense.  An implementation can choose to implement

/*| nsIMdbTable: an ordered collection of rows
**|
**|| row scope: an integer token for an atomized string in this database
**| that names a space for row IDs.  This attribute of a table is intended
**| as guidance metainformation that helps with searching a database for
**| tables that operate on collections of rows of the specific type.  By
**| convention, a table with a specific row scope is expected to focus on
**| containing rows that belong to that scope, however exceptions are easily
**| allowed because all rows in a table are known by both row ID and scope.
**| (A table with zero row scope is never allowed because this would make it
**| ambiguous to use a zero row scope when iterating over tables in a port to
**| indicate that all row scopes should be seen by a cursor.)
**|
**|| table kind: an integer token for an atomized string in this database
**| that names a kind of table as a subset of the associated row scope. This
**| attribute is intended as guidance metainformation to clarify the role of
**| this table with respect to other tables in the same row scope, and this
**| also helps search for such tables in a database.  By convention, a table
**| with a specific table kind has a consistent role for containing rows with
**| respect to other collections of such rows in the same row scope.  Also by
**| convention, at least one table in a row scope has a table kind purporting
**| to contain ALL the rows that belong in that row scope, so that at least
**| one table exists that allows all rows in a scope to be interated over.
**| (A table with zero table kind is never allowed because this would make it
**| ambiguous to use a zero table kind when iterating over tables in a port to
**| indicate that all table kinds in a row scope should be seen by a cursor.)
**|
**|| port: every table is considered part of some port that contains the
**| table, so that closing the containing port will cause the table to be
**| indirectly closed as well.  We make it easy to get the containing port for
**| a table, because the port supports important semantic interfaces that will
**| affect how content in table is presented; the most important port context
**| that affects a table is specified by the set of token to string mappings
**| that affect all tokens used throughout the database, and which drive the
**| meanings of row scope, table kind, cell columns, etc.
**|
**|| cursor: a cursor that iterates over the rows in this table, where rows
**| have zero-based index positions from zero to count-1.  Making a cursor
**| with negative position will next iterate over the first row in the table.
**|
**|| position: given any position from zero to count-1, a table will return
**| the row ID and row scope for the row at that position.  (One can use the
**| GetRowAllCells() method to read that row, or else use a row cursor to both
**| get the row at some position and read its content at the same time.)  The
**| position depends on whether a table is sorted, and upon the actual sort.
**| Note that moving a row's position is only possible in unsorted tables.
**|
**|| row set: every table contains a collection of rows, where a member row is
**| referenced by the table using the row ID and row scope for the row.  No
**| single table owns a given row instance, because rows are effectively ref-
**| counted and destroyed only when the last table removes a reference to that
**| particular row.  (But a row can be emptied of all content no matter how
**| many refs exist, and this might be the next best thing to destruction.)
**| Once a row exists in a least one table (after NewRow() is called), then it
**| can be added to any other table by calling AddRow(), or removed from any
**| table by calling CutRow(), or queried as a member by calling HasRow().  A
**| row can only be added to a table once, and further additions do nothing and
**| complain not at all.  Cutting a row from a table only does something when
**| the row was actually a member, and otherwise does nothing silently.
**|
**|| row ref count: one can query the number of tables (and/or cells)
**| containing a row as a member or a child.
**|
**|| row content: one can access or modify the cell content in a table's row
**| by moving content to or from an instance of nsIMdbRow.  Note that nsIMdbRow
**| never represents the actual row inside a table, and this is the reason
**| why nsIMdbRow instances do not have row IDs or row scopes.  So an instance
**| of nsIMdbRow always and only contains a snapshot of some or all content in
**| past, present, or future persistent row inside a table.  This means that
**| reading and writing rows in tables has strictly copy semantics, and we
**| currently do not plan any exceptions for specific performance reasons.
**|
**|| sorting: note all rows are assumed sorted by row ID as a secondary
**| sort following the primary column sort, when table rows are sorted.

  // to change (say by directly or indirectly setting the text to hold more
  // content that might grow the size of the buffer and free the old buffer).
  // In particular, callers should scrupulously avoid making calls into the
  // mdb interface to write any content while using the buffer pointer found
  // in the returned yarn instance.  Best safe usage involves copying content
  // into some other kind of external content representation beyond mdb.
  //

  // of very fast and efficient cooperative locking via a pointer to some lock
  // member slot.  But let's ignore that complexity in the current design.)

  // AliasYarn() is specifically intended as the first step in transferring
  // content from nsIMdbBlob to a nsString representation, without forcing extra
  // allocations and/or memory copies. (A standard nsIMdbBlob_AsString() utility
  // will use AliasYarn() as the first step in setting a nsString instance.)
  //
  // This is an alternative to the GetYarn() method, which has copy semantics
  // only; AliasYarn() relaxes a robust safety principle only for performance
  // reasons, to accomodate the need for callers to transform text content to
  // some other canonical representation that would necessitate an additional
  // copy and transformation when such is incompatible with the mdbYarn format.
  //
  // The implementation of AliasYarn() should have extremely little overhead
  // besides the virtual dispatch to the method implementation, and the code
  // necessary to populate all the mdbYarn member slots with internal buffer
  // address and metainformation that describes the buffer content.  Note that
