+ * A ref_transaction represents a collection of ref updates
+ * that should succeed or fail together.
+ *
+ * Calling sequence
+ * ----------------
+ * - Allocate and initialize a `struct ref_transaction` by calling
+ * `ref_transaction_begin()`.
+ *
+ * - List intended ref updates by calling functions like
+ * `ref_transaction_update()` and `ref_transaction_create()`.
+ *
+ * - Call `ref_transaction_commit()` to execute the transaction.
+ * If this succeeds, the ref updates will have taken place and
+ * the transaction cannot be rolled back.
+ *
+ * - At any time call `ref_transaction_free()` to discard the
+ * transaction and free associated resources. In particular,
+ * this rolls back the transaction if it has not been
+ * successfully committed.
+ *
+ * Error handling
+ * --------------
+ *
+ * On error, transaction functions append a message about what
+ * went wrong to the 'err' argument. The message mentions what
+ * ref was being updated (if any) when the error occurred so it
+ * can be passed to 'die' or 'error' as-is.
+ *
+ * The message is appended to err without first clearing err.
+ * err will not be '\n' terminated.
