Remove some unused box object related interfaces
There are some interfaces in layout/xul/base/public which aren't used at all. for example nsIBoxLayoutManager and nsIBoxPaintManager. I think those can be removed. nsIBrowserBoxObject, nsIIFrameBoxObject and nsIEditorBoxObject have all just one attribute, |readonly attribute nsIDocShell docShell| IMO, those could be merged to nsIDocShellContainer or whatever would be a good name.
Perhaps Neil has some comments to this :)

This was missing from the patch
Comment on attachment 225273 [details] [diff] [review] something like this After the mess of bug 340084 I don't feel qualified to review this. However, I'd name the class nsContainerBoxObject etc. I'd also use FORWARD_NSICONTAINERBOXOBJECT(nsBoxObject::)
> one attribute, |readonly attribute nsIDocShell docShell| Which I'd like to go away in favor of an nsIWebNavigation, frankly.... any time our chrome uses nsIDocShell, we have a bug, imo.
Comment on attachment 225273 [details] [diff] [review] something like this Boris, do you want to say something else about this. I agree with Neil that nsIContainerBoxObject would be a better name. Changing the attribute to nsIWebNavigation is a different bug. (But I'll investigate that too :) )
smaug, I'm pretty totally swamped right now; I won't be able to do a detailed review of something like this probably until July. :(
Comment on attachment 225273 [details] [diff] [review] something like this Ok, I'll try someone else...
This contains both patches, uses name ContainerBoxObject and ::GetDocShell moved to ContainerBoxObject since it was not needed in nsBoxObject. The previous patch was also missing some deleted files; this one has quite good +/- ratio :) +261/-837 lines
This is actually a XUL API change. People who were using the old nsIEditorBoxObject etc interfaces will be broken. I suspect that's a bad idea. How about we define nsIEditorBoxObject, nsIBrowserBoxObject, and nsIIFrameBoxObject, make them all just inherit from nsIContainerBoxObject adding no new methods, and then implement them as tearoffs on nsContainerBoxObject?
Comment on attachment 228998 [details] [diff] [review] Keeping interfaces for browser, iframe and editor OK. Removing the layout and paint managers is technically an interface change, but since no objects implementing those interfaces ever existed, I think we'll be OK.
