class PrefStore;

// The class PrefValueStore provides values for preferences. Each Preference
// has a unique name. This name is used to retrieve the value of a Preference.
// The value of a preference can be either managed, user-defined or recommended.
// Managed preference values are set (managed) by a third person (like an
// admin for example). They have the highest priority and can not be
// altered by the user.
// User-defined values are chosen by the user. If there is already
// a managed value for a preference the user-defined value is ignored and
// the managed value is used (returned).
// Otherwise user-defined values have a higher precedence than recommended
// values. Recommended preference values are set by a third person
// (like an admin).

  // In decreasing order of precedence:

  //        switches.
  //   |user_prefs| contains all user-set preference values.
  //   |recommended_prefs| contains all recommended (policy) preference values.
