/**
  * Using tmTransaction:
  *
  *   After creating a tmTransaction either through new or as a member 
  *   or local variable a process must call Init() with the proper set of
  *   arguements to initialize the state of the transaction. tmTransaction is
  *   set up to accept 3 types of initialization.
  *
  *   1) Raw message - All data is carried in the byte pointer aMessage,
  *      args 2,3,4 should be set to TM_NO_ID and aLength 
  *      must be set to the full length of aMessage, including null
  *      termination if the payload is a null-term string and the size of the
  *      tmHeader struct preceeding the message. Currently this
  *      format is used at the IPC boundary, where we receive a byte pointer
  *      from the IPC Daemon.
  *
  *   2) Flags only - aQueueID, aAction and aStatus are all set. aMessage
  *      should be set to nsnull and aLength to 0. This format is used when
  *      sending reply messages (except for ATTACH_REPLY) and when the TS
  *      Transaction Service is sending "control" messages to the Manager -
  *      flush, detach, etc...
  *
  *   3) Flags and message - All arguements are set. The aMessage is only
  *      the message for the client app. aLength should be set to the length
  *      of aMessage and not include the length of the tmHeader struct.
  *   
  *   The only data member you can set post initialization is the QueueID.
  *      You should only call Init() once in the lifetime of a tmTransaction
  *      as it doesn't clean up the exisiting data before assigning the new
  *      data. Therefore it would leak most heinously if Init() were to be
  *      called twice.
  *
  *   mOwnerID only has relevance on the IPC daemon side of things. The 
  *      Transaction Service has no knowledge of this ID and makes no use
  *      of it.

    *   exists it is copied into the transaction.

    * @param aOwnerID is given to us by the IPC Daemon and is specific
    *        to that transport layer. It is only set when transactions
    *        are sent from the TM to the TS.
    *
    * @param aQueueID is the either the destination queue, or the queue from
    *        where this transaction is eminating
    *
    * @param aAction is the action that occured to generate this transaction
    *
    * @param aStatus is the success state of the action.
    *
    * @param aMessage can be a raw message including the 3 flags above or it
    *        can be just the "payload" of the transaction that the destination
    *        process is going deal with.
    *
    * @param aLength is the length of the message. If there is a null
    *        terminated string in the message make sure the length includes
    *        the null termination.
    *
    * @returns NS_OK if everything was successful
    * @returns NS_ERROR_OUT_OF_MEMORY if allocation of space for the
    *          copy of the message fails.
