* The base interface for both pure asynchronous storage statements
* (mozIStorageAsyncStatement) and 'classic' storage statements
* (mozIStorageStatement) that can be used for both synchronous and asynchronous
* purposes.

* Finalizes a statement so you can successfully close a database connection.
* Once a statement has been finalized it can no longer be used for any
* purpose.
* Statements are implicitly finalized when their reference counts hits zero.
* If you are a native (C++) caller this is accomplished by setting all of
* your nsCOMPtr instances to be NULL. If you are operating from JavaScript
* code then you cannot rely on this behavior because of the involvement of
* garbage collection.
* When finalizing an asynchronous statement you do not need to worry about
* whether the statement has actually been executed by the asynchronous
* thread; you just need to call finalize after your last call to executeAsync
* involving the statement. However, you do need to use asyncClose instead of
* close on the connection if any statements have been used asynchronously.
void finalize();
* Binds the array of parameters to the statement. When executeAsync is
* called, all the parameters in aParameters are bound and then executed.
* @param aParameters
* The array of parameters to bind to the statement upon execution.
* @note This is only works on statements being used asynchronously.
void bindParameters(in mozIStorageBindingParamsArray aParameters);
* Creates a new mozIStorageBindingParamsArray that can be used to bind
* multiple sets of data to a statement with bindParameters.
* @return a mozIStorageBindingParamsArray that multiple sets of parameters
* can be bound to.
* @note This is only useful for statements being used asynchronously.
mozIStorageBindingParamsArray newBindingParamsArray();
* Execute a query asynchronously using any currently bound parameters. This
* statement can be reused immediately, and reset does not need to be called.
* @note If you have any custom defined functions, they must be re-entrant
* since they can be called on multiple threads.
* @param aCallback [optional]
* The callback object that will be notified of progress, errors, and
* completion.
* @return an object that can be used to cancel the statements execution.

[optional] in mozIStorageStatementCallback aCallback
* The statement is not usable, either because it failed to initialize or
* was explicitly finalized.
* The statement is usable.
* Indicates that the statement is executing and the row getters may be used.
* @note This is only relevant for mozIStorageStatement instances being used
* in a synchronous fashion.
* Find out whether the statement is usable (has not been finalized).

* Escape a string for SQL LIKE search.
* @note Consumers will have to use same escape char when doing statements
* such as: ...LIKE '?1' ESCAPE '/'...
* @param aValue
* The string to escape for SQL LIKE.
* @param aEscapeChar
* The escape character.
* @return an AString of an escaped version of aValue
* (%, _ and the escape char are escaped with the escape char)
* For example, we will convert "foo/bar_baz%20cheese"
* into "foo//bar/_baz/%20cheese" (if the escape char is '/').
