OS.File is a new API designed for efficient, off-main thread, manipulation of files by privileged JavaScript code. This API is intended to replace, in time, most XPCOM-based manipulation of files (nsIFile, subsets of nsIIOService, etc.) by JavaScript code.
NOTE: The API for moving/renaming a file has "unspecified" behaviour if doing so for a directory.
