Details

When Java needs a proxy class to wrap an XPCOM interface, and the class doesn't
exist, the system should generate the class on the fly and load it into the JVM.

Each proxy class implements the Java translation of an XPCOM interface by
marshalling parameters onto an Object array, passing that array (with the
receiver and method selector) to a package-private general dispatch method, and
unmarshalling results back to the "out" formal parameters and return value.
Assign to self, until other help emerges.
