// Overview
// --------
// This class provides current thumbnails for tabs. The simplest operation is
// when a request for a thumbnail comes in, to grab the backing store and make
// a smaller version of that.
// A complication happens because we don't always have nice backing stores for
// all tabs (there is a cache of several tabs we'll keep backing stores for).
// To get thumbnails for tabs with expired backing stores, we listen for
// backing stores that are being thrown out, and generate thumbnails before
// that happens. We attach them to the RenderWidgetHost via the property bag
// so we can retrieve them later. When a tab has a live backing store again,
// we throw away the thumbnail since it's now out-of-date.
// Another complication is performance. If the user brings up a tab switcher, we
// don't want to get all 5 cached backing stores since it is a very large amount
// of data. As a result, we generate thumbnails for tabs that are hidden even
// if the backing store is still valid. This means we'll have to do a maximum
// of generating thumbnails for the visible tabs at any point.
// The last performance consideration is when the user switches tabs quickly.
// This can happen by doing Control-PageUp/Down or juct clicking quickly on
// many different tabs (like when you're looking for one). We don't want to
// slow this down by making thumbnails for each tab as it's hidden. Therefore,
// we have a timer so that we don't invalidate thumbnails for tabs that are
// only shown briefly (which would cause the thumbnail to be regenerated when
// the tab is hidden).
