// 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 dedicated.
// Some theoretical implementations of SingleThreadTaskRunner:
// - A SingleThreadTaskRunner that uses a single worker thread to
// run posted tasks (i.e., a message loop).
// - A SingleThreadTaskRunner that stores the list of posted tasks
// and has a method Run() that runs each runnable task in FIFO
// order that must be run only from the thread the
// SingleThreadTaskRunner was created on.
