For bug 715376, I *think* I need the ability to run timeouts outside of RunTimeout.  (I haven't totally figured out where everything goes yet, though.)  Some moving things around is helpful for doing that.

Independent of those concerns, though, RunTimeout is a pretty big function and breaking it up is helpful.

I think the new RescheduleTimeout function is especially helpful at clarifying the logic for interval timeouts.

Asking for feedback, rather than review, to see if this sort of thing is even desirable to start with.

There is no |timeout| in this method.  Just take out the parenthetical?  And fix the indent on the comment, please.

No, this is wrong.  In the caller, where the code and comment came from, aTimeout is the thing passed to RunTimeout; that's what was being null-checked originally.  But in this method, aTimeout is the |timeout| from RunTimeout, which in particular is never null here.  So this code is no longer doing what it should.  Please fix that.

>+  bool RescheduleTimeout(nsTimeout *aTimeout, const TimeStamp &now);

Please document the meaning of the return value.

Sorry for the lag here; apart from the above nits and firingTime issue, this looks good!

Think I fixed everything bz pointed out; bouncing r? to someone different for a second pair of eyes.

This release should move into the helper

Updated with Ms2ger's concerns.  I guess local style for dom/ is aspirational, rather than what one finds in nearby code?

Redirecting this to bz because I've never touched nor read that code before.

Any chance of an interdiff from the last thing I reviewed?

More precisely, it's a matter of some recent disagreement... ;)

The "timeout->AddRef();" in RunTimeoutHandler should go away.  Otherwise this leaks.

r=me with that.  Thanks for the interdiff!
