// A SingleThreadTaskRunner is a SequencedTaskRunner with one more
// guarantee; namely, that all tasks are run on a single dedicated
// thread. Most use cases require only a SequencedTaskRunner, unless
// there is a specific need to run tasks on only a single thread.
// SingleThreadTaskRunner implementations might:
// - Post tasks to an existing thread's MessageLoop (see MessageLoopProxy).
// - Create their own worker thread and MessageLoop to post tasks to.
// - Add tasks to a FIFO and signal to a non-MessageLoop thread for them to
// be processed. This allows TaskRunner-oriented code run on threads
// running other kinds of message loop, e.g. Jingle threads.
