* The context-wide source hook allows the source of scripts/functions to be
* discarded, if that source is constant and readily-reloadable if it's needed
* in the future.
* Ordinarily, functions and scripts store a copy of their underlying source, to
* support |Function.prototype.toString| and debuggers. Some scripts, however,
* might be constant and retrievable on demand -- perhaps burned into the binary
* or in a readonly file provided by the embedding. Why not just ask the
* embedding for a copy of the source?
* The context-wide |SourceHook| gives embedders a way to respond to these
* requests. The source of scripts/functions compiled with the compile option
* |JS::CompileOptions::setSourceIsLazy(true)| is eligible to be discarded.
* (The exact conditions under which source is discarded are unspecified.) *If*
* source is discarded, performing an operation that requires source uses the
* source hook to load the source.
* The source hook must return the *exact* same source for every call. (This is
* why the source hook is unsuitable for use with scripts loaded from the web:
* in general, their contents can change over time.) If the source hook doesn't
* return the exact same source, Very Bad Things may happen. (For example,
* previously-valid indexes into the source will no longer be coherent: they
* might index out of bounds, into the middle of multi-unit code points, &c.)
* These APIs are experimental because they shouldn't provide a per-*context*
* mechanism, rather something that's per-compilation.

* is non-null, source was loaded and must be |js_free|'d when it's no longer
* needed. If the stored pointer is null, the JS engine will simply act as if
* source was unavailable, and users like |Function.prototype.toString| will
* produce fallback results, e.g. "[native code]".
