Be forwarned that the 'TX' stuff is being deprecated in the version 2.x
architecture. That functionality is being implemented in other ways, which
keep it cleanly out of the core DOM stuff (for better layering of blessed
stuff vs. extended stuff.) There is a 'TX compatibility' layer that
provides most of that functionality in the old way, to help people move
forward. But don't make use of it in any new code based on our 2.x system.
The TX stuff won't be in the C++ version at all.
