nsNetUtil.h defines 3 versions of NS_OpenURI.  The first returns an unopened
channel, while the latter two call either Open or AsyncOpen to actually open
the channel.  Overloading the function name NS_OpenURI like this is very
confusing.

Opening a URI means opening the channel corresponding to the URI, so NS_OpenURI
should be renamed to something like NS_NewChannel or NS_NewChannelFromURI in
the case that returns a nsIChannel.

The old method would remain (for backwards compatibility), but we should mark
it as depracated and possibly insert a debug warning.

poking around w/ LXR, I see there are currently two NS_OpenURI, as well as a
change in CVS that renamed the 3rd.
