// Generic interface for binding a message pipe |pipe| to an interface with type
// |interface_name|. As a generic binding surface, this interface will never be
// provided to an unprivileged process. When implementing or using this
// interface, keep in mind the following:
//
// 1. This interface is accessible only to unsandboxed, privileged processes
// running trusted code.
// 2. Trusted clients are free to pass and wrap this interface around as they
// see fit. Therefore, make no assumptions about which trusted system
// components have access to it, since there is no programmatic enforcement.
//
// This interface is only used on Cast devices. This offers an easy way to move
// off of the Service Manager. For example, an instance of RemoteInterfaces can
// be injected into a process that uses the service_manager::Connector to bind
// Remotes to other services.
interface RemoteInterfaces {
// Requests to bind |pipe| to a named interface type.
BindInterface(string interface_name, handle<message_pipe> pipe);
// Binds a remote client to the implementation.
AddClient(pending_receiver<RemoteInterfaces> receiver);
