Description :Benjamin Peterson 2012-07-11 11:35:44 PDT
Otherwise XBL can pass empty parameter names through the JS API, which is not exactly supported.
Comment 1 Olli Pettay [:smaug] 2012-07-11 12:20:24 PDT
Can JSAPI handle cases when param name contains whitespaces?

> Can JSAPI handle cases when param name contains whitespaces?

We don't check if anything is a valid identifier. If it contains whitespace, nothing will probably go wrong, but that's useless, right? You can use JS_IsIdentifier to do this check.

Empty macro arguments cause build warnings :(

Really? We have those in many places.
But I can change that to
if (aText.IsEmpty()) {
  NS_WARNING("Empty name attribute in xbl:parameter!");
