I'm choosing to expose the shutdown data through nsIAppStartup instead of groveling in the file directly in Telemetry.  This way we only need knowledge about the filename is one place, rather than widely separated places.  It does have the downside of being somewhat more complicated.  Feel free to r- and tell me to do it the dirt-simple way if you don't like the complexity.

The current way the shutdown filename is generated is only suitable for shutdown times; for exposing this data through telemetry, we need it to stick around longer.  Make that possible first.

The caching is in case we request the time after the next shutdown timestamp has been written.  Don't know if it's possible for Telemetry to do that, but figured I'd better play it safe.

Now that all of the complicated stuff is out of the way, sending the bits is pretty simple.

part 2 - expose shutdown duration through nsIAppStartup

I think it'd be better if this returns null on failure. Exposing throwy APIs is a recipe for someone to forget an exception handler

part 3 - send the shutdown duration

Take out the try/catch. turn it into if(si.lastShutdownDurection)...

r+ with that...Alternatively is bsmedberg prefers exceptions(I hope he does not), this is ok too.

Yeah, Taras is right, return 0 on failure instead of throwing (and add that to the IDL docs).

Non-throwing version.

either mLastShutdownTime needs to be "int" instead of "PRUint32" or you need to use a temporary int and then assign it. r=me with that change
