interface nsIStreamLoaderObserver : nsISupports
* Called when the entire stream has been loaded.
* @param loader the stream loader that loaded the stream.
* @param ctxt the context parameter of the underlying channel
* @param status the status of the underlying channel
* @param resultLength the length of the data loaded
* @param result the data
* This method will always be called asynchronously by the
* nsIStreamLoader involved, on the thread that called the
* loader's init() method.
* If the observer wants to take over responsibility for the
* data buffer (result), it returns NS_SUCCESS_ADOPTED_DATA
* in place of NS_OK as its success code. The loader will then
* "forget" about the data and not free() it after
* onStreamComplete() returns; observer must call free()
* when the data is no longer required.

* Asynchronously loads a channel into a memory buffer.
* To use this interface, first call init() with a nsIStreamLoaderObserver
* that will be notified when the data has been loaded. Then call asyncOpen()
* on the channel with the nsIStreamLoader as the listener. The context
* argument in the asyncOpen() call will be passed to the onStreamComplete()

* @param aStreamObserver
* An observer that will be notified when the data is complete.
* @param aRequestObserver
* An optional observer that will be notified when the request
* has started or stopped.
