// This class provides common pipe reading functionality for the
// platform-specific IPC channel implementations.
// It does the common input buffer management and message dispatch, while the
// platform-specific parts provide the pipe management through a virtual
// interface implemented on a per-platform basis.
// Note that there is no "writer" corresponding to this because the code for
// writing to the channel is much simpler and has very little common
// functionality that would benefit from being factored out. If we add
// something like that in the future, it would be more appropriate to add it
// here (and rename appropriately) rather than writing a different class.
