#include "nsrootidl.idl"
* Basic component object model interface. Objects which implement
* this interface support runtime interface discovery (QueryInterface)
* and a reference counted memory model (AddRef/Release). This is
* modelled after the win32 IUnknown API.
* Historically, nsISupports needed to be binary compatible with COM's
* IUnknown, so the IID of nsISupports is the same as it. That is no
* longer a goal, and hopefully nobody depends on it. We may break
* this compatibility at any time.
