netwerk/base/src/nsIOService.cpp has an RAII-style AutoIncrement class that would be useful elsewhere. I'd like to move it to mfbt.

Comment on attachment 543842 [details] [diff] [review] Patch v1a, r=dholbert Hi Brian, I'm r-'ing this patch not because there are major problems with the impl, but because I'm not sure this is a common pattern across js/src and gecko. The pattern I've come across more commonly is . If AutoIncrement starts seeing use outside of the IO service, we can polish up it and revisit. CC'ing luke for a second opinion.  http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/xpcom/glue/AutoRestore.h#163

I agree with the general sentiment that its good to hoist lazily (when needed) vs. eagerly. I also agree that I can't think of any uses for AutoIncrement in SM; usually the ++/-- is part of some specific guard that does more than just ++/--.
(In reply to comment #2) >  > http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/xpcom/glue/AutoRestore.h#163 Much as I like the sleekness of AutoIncrement, I think that AutoRestore should serve our purposes equally well. Brian -- so it looks like we could replace your proposed... > AutoIncrement<PRUint16> inc(&mUpdateIntervalRecursionDepth); ...with... > AutoRestore<PRUint16> depthRestorer(mUpdateIntervalRecursionDepth); > mUpdateIntervalRecursionDepth++; Perhaps we should re-target this bug to be about that?
Thanks Chris and Luke. Fair call. I failed to point out that this wasn't just speculative; the reason for requesting it is that we need something like this in SMIL. However, as Daniel points out, the AutoRestore option Chris mentioned will do the trick. Thanks!
