* Set the visibility of a view. Hidden views have the effect of hiding

* hidden.
* The view manager generates the appropriate dirty regions.
* @param aView view to change visibility state of

void SetViewVisibility(nsView* aView, ViewVisibility aVisible);
* Set the z-index of a view. Positive z-indices mean that a view
* is above its parent in z-order. Negative z-indices mean that a
* view is below its parent.
* The view manager generates the appropriate dirty regions.
* @param aAutoZIndex indicate that the z-index of a view is "auto". An
* "auto" z-index means that the view does not define a new stacking
* context, which means that the z-indicies of the view's children are
* relative to the view's siblings.

* Set whether the view "floats" above all other views,
* which tells the compositor not to consider higher views in
* the view hierarchy that would geometrically intersect with
* this view. This is a hack, but it fixes some problems with
* views that need to be drawn in front of all other views.

* A stack class for disallowing changes that would enter painting. For
* example, popup widgets shouldn't be resized during reflow, since doing so
* might cause synchronous painting inside reflow which is forbidden.
* While refresh is disabled, widget geometry changes are deferred and will
* be handled later, either from the refresh driver or from an NS_WILL_PAINT
* event.
* We don't want to defer widget geometry changes all the time. Resizing a
* popup from script doesn't need to be deferred, for example, especially
* since popup widget geometry is observable from script and expected to
* update synchronously.

Invalidation model:
1) Callers call into the view manager and ask it to invalidate a view.
2) The view manager finds the "right" widget for the view, henceforth called
the root widget.
3) The view manager traverses descendants of the root widget and for each
one that needs invalidation stores the rect to invalidate on the widget's
view (batching).
4) The dirty region is flushed to the right widget when
ProcessPendingUpdates is called from the RefreshDriver.
It's important to note that widgets associated to views outside this view
manager can end up being invalidated during step 3. Therefore, the end of a
view update batch really needs to traverse the entire view tree, to ensure
that those invalidates happen.
To cope with this, invalidation processing and should only happen on the
root viewmanager.
