* @param aOptions A set of options (may be null). Options may contain:
* - bool shared (defaults to |false|).
* -- If |true|, opens the database with a shared-cache. The
* shared-cache mode is more memory-efficient when many
* connections to the same database are expected, though, the
* connections will contend the cache resource. In any cases
* where performance matter, working without a shared-cache will
* improve concurrency. @see openUnsharedDatabase
*
* - int growthIncrement (defaults to none).
* -- Set the growth increment for the main database. This hints SQLite to
* grow the database file by a given chunk size and may reduce
* filesystem fragmentation on large databases.
* @see mozIStorageConnection::setGrowthIncrement
*
* @param aCallback A callback that will receive the result of the operation.
* In case of error, it may receive as status:
* - NS_ERROR_OUT_OF_MEMORY if allocating a new storage object fails.
* - NS_ERROR_FILE_CORRUPTED if the database file is corrupted.
* In case of success, it receives as argument the new database
* connection, as an instance of |mozIStorageAsyncConnection|.
*
* @throws NS_ERROR_INVALID_ARG if |aDatabaseStore| is neither a file nor
* one of the special strings understood by this method, or if one of
* the options passed through |aOptions| does not have the right type.
* @throws NS_ERROR_NOT_SAME_THREAD if called from a thread other than the
* main thread.
