* The XUL store is used to store information related to a XUL document/application.
* Typically it is used to store the persisted state for the document, such as
* window location, toolbars that are open and nodes that are open and closed in a tree.
*
* If MOZ_NEW_XULSTORE is enabled:
* XULStore.jsm wraps this API in useful abstractions for JS consumers.
* XULStore.h provides a more idiomatic API for C++ consumers.
* You should use those APIs unless you have good reasons to use this one.
*
* If MOZ_NEW_XULSTORE is disabled:
* The data is serialized to [profile directory]/xulstore.json
