/**
* This file contains an interface to the Permission Manager,
* used to persistenly store permissions for different object types (cookies,
* images etc) on a site-by-site basis.
*
* This service broadcasts the following notification when the permission list
* is changed:
*
* topic : "perm-changed" (PERM_CHANGE_NOTIFICATION)
* broadcast whenever the permission list changes in some way. there
* are four possible data strings for this notification; one
* notification will be broadcast for each change, and will involve
* a single permission.
* subject: an nsIPermission interface pointer representing the permission object
* that changed.
* data : "deleted"
* a permission was deleted. the subject is the deleted permission.
* "added"
* a permission was added. the subject is the added permission.
* "changed"
* a permission was changed. the subject is the new permission.
* "cleared"
* the entire permission list was cleared. the subject is null.
