Details

If a C++ XPCOM method returns a nonnegative and nonzero NSRESULT, Java code
should be able to retrieve that code through an API yet to be determined
(probably a static method somewhere).  *This should not be an exception.*

The code should be stored *per thread*, so that multiple threads cannot erase or
mangle each other's "success codes".
