/* nsINativeAppSupport
* This "pseudo" (in the XPCOM sense) interface provides for
* platform-specific general application support
* Due to the nature of the beast, this interface is not a full-blown
* XPCOM component. The primary reason is that objects that implement
* this interface generally must be operational *before* XPCOM (or any
* of the rest of Mozilla) are initialized. As a result, this
* interface is instantiated by somewhat unconventional means.
* To create the implementor of this interface, you call the function
* NS_CreateNativeAppSupport. This is done in the startup code
* in nsAppRunner.cpp
* The interface provides these functions:
* start - You call this to inform the native app support that the
* application is starting. In addition, it serves as a
* query as to whether the application should continue to
* run.
* If the returned boolean result is PR_FALSE, then the
* application should exit without further processing. In
* such cases, the returned nsresult indicates whether the
* reason to exit is due to an error or not.
* Win32 Note: In the case of starting a second instance
* of this executable, this function will return
* PR_FALSE and nsresult==NS_OK. This means that
* the command line arguments have been
* successfully passed to the instance of the
* application acting as a remote server.
* quit - Informs the native app support that the application is stopping. The
* app support should disable any functionality enabled by start.
* onLastWindowClosing - Called when the last window is closed. Used as a
* "soft" shutdown, passwords are flushed.
