// CFTypeRefToNSObjectAutorelease transfers ownership of a Core Foundation
// object (one derived from CFTypeRef) to the Foundation memory management
// system.  In a traditional managed-memory environment, cf_object is
// autoreleased and returned as an NSObject.  In a garbage-collected
// environment, cf_object is marked as eligible for garbage collection.
//
// This function should only be used to convert a concrete CFTypeRef type to
// its equivalent "toll-free bridged" NSObject subclass, for example,
// converting a CFStringRef to NSString.
//
// By calling this function, callers relinquish any ownership claim to
// cf_object.  In a managed-memory environment, the object's ownership will be
// managed by the innermost NSAutoreleasePool, so after this function returns,
// callers should not assume that cf_object is valid any longer than the
// returned NSObject.

  // is a no-op.
  //
  // In the traditional GC-less environment, NSMakeCollectable is a no-op,
  // and cf_object is autoreleased, balancing out the caller's ownership claim.
  //
  // NSMakeCollectable returns nil when used on a NULL object.
