Gecko has this now for DOM interfaces, mostly. It's a noticeable
performance and memory penalty, especially as features need to be added,
due to the way it's implemented right now on top of C++ vtables. As
Benjamin mentioned, we will most likely stop doing this by default for
the core DOM interfaces. Someone could still provide a stable ABI in
some form of C++ binding, but it's not clear to me that we plan to do
that ourselves. Patches accepted, probably.
