But then, if "textChanged" fires on any change, including scripted
changes, we need to go through extra hoops to distinguish between
user-input and script-based changes. The message as it is now means
Text-Changed-by-User and allow us, for example, verify user input
(and what if the verification routine programmatically corrects user
input?). I am not sure that that would really be so useful in the big
scheme of things.
