// MessagePumpForUI extends MessagePumpWin with methods that are particular to a
// MessageLoop instantiated with TYPE_UI.
//
// MessagePumpForUI implements a "traditional" Windows message pump. It contains
// a nearly infinite loop that peeks out messages, and then dispatches them.
// Intermixed with those peeks are callouts to DoWork for pending tasks, and
// DoDelayedWork for pending timers. When there are no events to be serviced,
// this pump goes into a wait state. In most cases, this message pump handles
// all processing.
//
// However, when a task, or windows event, invokes on the stack a native dialog
// box or such, that window typically provides a bare bones (native?) message
// pump.  That bare-bones message pump generally supports little more than a
// peek of the Windows message queue, followed by a dispatch of the peeked
// message.  MessageLoop extends that bare-bones message pump to also service
// Tasks, at the cost of some complexity.
//
// The basic structure of the extension (refered to as a sub-pump) is that a
// special message, kMsgHaveWork, is repeatedly injected into the Windows
// Message queue.  Each time the kMsgHaveWork message is peeked, checks are
// made for an extended set of events, including the availability of Tasks to
// run.
//
// After running a task, the special message kMsgHaveWork is again posted to
// the Windows Message queue, ensuring a future time slice for processing a
// future event.  To prevent flooding the Windows Message queue, care is taken
// to be sure that at most one kMsgHaveWork message is EVER pending in the
// Window's Message queue.
//
// There are a few additional complexities in this system where, when there are
// no Tasks to run, this otherwise infinite stream of messages which drives the
// sub-pump is halted.  The pump is automatically re-started when Tasks are
// queued.
//
// A second complexity is that the presence of this stream of posted tasks may
// prevent a bare-bones message pump from ever peeking a WM_PAINT or WM_TIMER.
// Such paint and timer events always give priority to a posted message, such as
// kMsgHaveWork messages.  As a result, care is taken to do some peeking in
// between the posting of each kMsgHaveWork message (i.e., after kMsgHaveWork
// is peeked, and before a replacement kMsgHaveWork is posted).
//
// NOTE: Although it may seem odd that messages are used to start and stop this
// flow (as opposed to signaling objects, etc.), it should be understood that
// the native message pump will *only* respond to messages.  As a result, it is
// an excellent choice.  It is also helpful that the starter messages that are
// placed in the queue when new task arrive also awakens DoRunLoop.
