only some outdated docs. (I was about to request a review, but then I got some
ideas, and no code line was left unchanged...)

I'll post a preview as soon as I have some usable documentation, and the code
as soon as I've tested it on more than one compiler, to avoid the most
obvious portability issues.

attached is a simple test case demonstrating concurrent transactions.
there's not a lot to explain, it's the classic example of multiple
transactions concurrently withdrawing and depositing from/to bank accounts.

maybe this:
the _loc suffix denotes what I call a "locator". it is similar to a pointer
but can reference not only objects in memory but also objects in any
persistent resource configured with the transaction manager.

so in the example, loc<> is the equivalent to a raw pointer, and shared_loc is
the equivalent to a shared_ptr.
