     * The name of the request.  Often this is the URI of the request.
00055     readonly attribute AUTF8String name;

     * Indicates whether the request is pending. nsIRequest::isPending is
     * true when there is an outstanding asynchronous event that will make
     * the request no longer be pending.  Requests do not necessarily start
     * out pending; in some cases, requests have to be explicitly initiated
     * (e.g. nsIChannel implementations are only pending once asyncOpen
     * returns successfully).
     * Requests can become pending multiple times during their lifetime.
     * @return TRUE if the request has yet to reach completion.
     * @return FALSE if the request has reached completion (e.g., after
     *   OnStopRequest has fired).
     * @note Suspended requests are still considered pending.

     * The error status associated with the request.
00077     readonly attribute nsresult status;

     * Cancels the current request.  This will close any open input or
     * output streams and terminate any async requests.  Users should 
     * normally pass NS_BINDING_ABORTED, although other errors may also
     * be passed.  The error passed in will become the value of the 
     * status attribute.
     * Implementations must not send any notifications (e.g. via
     * nsIRequestObserver) synchronously from this function. Similarly,
     * removal from the load group (if any) must also happen asynchronously.
     * Requests that use nsIStreamListener must not call onDataAvailable
     * anymore after cancel has been called.
     * @param aStatus the reason for canceling this request.
     * NOTE: most nsIRequest implementations expect aStatus to be a
     * failure code; however, some implementations may allow aStatus to
     * be a success code such as NS_OK.  In general, aStatus should be
     * a failure code.
    void cancel(in nsresult aStatus);

     * Suspends the current request.  This may have the effect of closing
     * any underlying transport (in order to free up resources), although
     * any open streams remain logically opened and will continue delivering
     * data when the transport is resumed.
     * Calling cancel() on a suspended request must not send any
     * notifications (such as onstopRequest) until the request is resumed.
     * NOTE: some implementations are unable to immediately suspend, and
     * may continue to deliver events already posted to an event queue. In
     * general, callers should be capable of handling events even after 
     * suspending a request.
    void suspend();

     * Resumes the current request.  This may have the effect of re-opening
     * any underlying transport and will resume the delivery of data to 
     * any open streams.
    void resume();

     * The load group of this request.  While pending, the request is a 
     * member of the load group.  It is the responsibility of the request
     * to implement this policy.

     * the load flags of the load group.

     * Listed below are the various load flags which may be or'd together.

     * No special load flags:
00147     const unsigned long LOAD_NORMAL = 0;

     * Don't deliver status notifications to the nsIProgressEventSink, or keep 
     * this load from completing the nsILoadGroup it may belong to.
00153     const unsigned long LOAD_BACKGROUND = 1 << 0; 

     * The following flags control the flow of data into the cache.

     * This flag prevents caching of any kind.  It does not, however, prevent
     * cached content from being used to satisfy this request.
00163     const unsigned long INHIBIT_CACHING = 1 << 7;

     * This flag prevents caching on disk (or other persistent media), which
     * may be needed to preserve privacy.  For HTTPS, this flag is set auto-
     * matically.
00170     const unsigned long INHIBIT_PERSISTENT_CACHING = 1 << 8;

     * The following flags control what happens when the cache contains data
     * that could perhaps satisfy this request.  They are listed in descending
     * order of precidence.

     * Force an end-to-end download of content data from the origin server.
     * This flag is used for a shift-reload.
00182     const unsigned long LOAD_BYPASS_CACHE = 1 << 9;

     * Load from the cache, bypassing protocol specific validation logic.  This
     * flag is used when browsing via history.  It is not recommended for normal
     * browsing as it may likely violate reasonable assumptions made by the 
     * server and confuse users.
00190     const unsigned long LOAD_FROM_CACHE   = 1 << 10;

     * The following flags control the frequency of cached content validation
     * when neither LOAD_BYPASS_CACHE or LOAD_FROM_CACHE are set.  By default,
     * cached content is automatically validated if necessary before reuse.
     * VALIDATE_ALWAYS forces validation of any cached content independent of
     * its expiration time.
     * VALIDATE_NEVER disables validation of expired content.
     * VALIDATE_ONCE_PER_SESSION disables validation of expired content, 
     * provided it has already been validated (at least once) since the start 
     * of this session.
     *   These flags are intended for normal browsing, and they should therefore
     *   not apply to content that must be validated before each use.  Consider,
     *   for example, a HTTP response with a "Cache-control: no-cache" header.
     *   According to RFC2616, this response must be validated before it can
     *   be taken from a cache.  Breaking this requirement could result in 
     *   incorrect and potentially undesirable side-effects.
00214     const unsigned long VALIDATE_ALWAYS           = 1 << 11;
