Right now we've got some logic in HttpChannelChild::Init to set the Host header (it's currently commented out) that's directly lifted from nsHttpChannel.  We should factor this out into a common function that both HttpChannelChild and nsHttpChannel can call.

I'll grab this one...  any preferred ways to share the code? Static method? Macro? Util-class? (I guess inheritance is not an option?)

You might want to double-check with Jason, Honza or others that this does not break other design-decisions in Electrolysis.
bug 445168 refactors this in a different way, perhaps that's good enough.

Yes Jae, you should really check with the guys driving the e10s-work whether there are any established best-practices or design patterns for such code-sharing (which I suspect will occur frequently). Using static methods may be safer since you don't risk unintentional shared state between the two subclasses. Check with Jason.

Fixed by bug 445168.

Actually this isn't fixed:  we'd still need to call the function biesi created.

But I've decided we should simply share a common Init() class between nsHttpChannel and HttpChannelChild, so that makes this bug moot.

Jae or Bjarne: perhaps one of you could grab Bug 546581?

Attached the proposed implementation of the common base-class. Can be used together with the patch as a start for bug #546581
