/**
 * URIs are essentially structured names for things -- anything. This interface
 * provides accessors to get the most basic components of an URI.
 * If you need to change some parts of the URI use nsIURIMutator.
 * Subclasses, including nsIURL, impose greater structure on the URI.
 *
 * This interface follows Tim Berners-Lee's URI spec (RFC3986) [1], where the
 * basic URI components are defined as such:
 * <pre>
 *      ftp://username:password@hostname:portnumber/pathname?query#ref
 *      \ /   \               / \      / \        /\       / \   / \ /
 *       -     ---------------   ------   --------  -------   ---   -
 *       |            |             |        |         |       |    |
 *       |            |             |        |      FilePath Query Ref
 *       |            |             |       Port       \            /
 *       |            |            Host      /          ------------
 *       |         UserPass                 /	              |
 *     Scheme                              /	             Path
 *       \                                /
 *        --------------------------------
 *                       |
 *                    PrePath
 * </pre>
 * The definition of the URI components has been extended to allow for
 * internationalized domain names [2] and the more generic IRI structure [3].

 * for sessionstore to work after an upgrade.  If this IID is revved further,
 * we will need to add additional checks there for all intermediate IIDs, until
 * ContentPrincipal is fixed to serialize its URIs as nsISupports (bug 662693).
