 * New rules of reflow:
 * 1. you get a WillReflow() followed by a Reflow() followed by a DidReflow() in order
 *    (no separate pass over the tree)
 * 2. it's the parent frame's responsibility to size/position the child's view (not
 *    the child frame's responsibility as it is today) during reflow (and before
 *    sending the DidReflow() notification)
 * 3. positioning of child frames (and their views) is done on the way down the tree,
 *    and sizing of child frames (and their views) on the way back up
 * 4. if you move a frame (outside of the reflow process, or after reflowing it),
 *    then you must make sure that its view (or its child frame's views) are re-positioned
 *    as well. It's reasonable to not position the view until after all reflowing the
 *    entire line, for example, but the frame should still be positioned and sized (and
 *    the view sized) during the reflow (i.e., before sending the DidReflow() notification)
 * 5. the view system handles moving of widgets, i.e., it's not our problem

 * Reflow status returned by the reflow methods. There are three
 * completion statuses, represented by two bit flags.
 * NS_FRAME_COMPLETE means the frame is fully complete.
 * NS_FRAME_NOT_COMPLETE bit flag means the frame does not map all its
 * content, and that the parent frame should create a continuing frame.
 * If this bit isn't set it means the frame does map all its content.
 * This bit is mutually exclusive with NS_FRAME_OVERFLOW_INCOMPLETE.
 * NS_FRAME_OVERFLOW_INCOMPLETE bit flag means that the frame has
 * overflow that is not complete, but its own box is complete.
 * (This happens when content overflows a fixed-height box.)
 * The reflower should place and size the frame and continue its reflow,
 * but needs to create an overflow container as a continuation for this
 * frame. See nsContainerFrame.h for more information.
 * This bit is mutually exclusive with NS_FRAME_NOT_COMPLETE.
 * Please use the SET macro for handling
 * NS_FRAME_REFLOW_NEXTINFLOW bit flag means that the next-in-flow is
 * dirty, and also needs to be reflowed. This status only makes sense
 * for a frame that is not complete, i.e. you wouldn't set both
 * The low 8 bits of the nsReflowStatus are reserved for future extensions;
 * the remaining 24 bits are zero (and available for extensions; however
 * API's that accept/return nsReflowStatus must not receive/return any
 * extension bits).

 * the same parent frame.
