Internationalization API Reference

NOTE - Do not directly call any API in: text.resource.* This package is not included in this list, because it is a temporary package.
We had to make them public to work around a problem in 1.1 that we will fix
in the next API-change release. The API and implementation in this package
will change, and some API will possibly be added and deleted.
Please treat these as if they were package-private.
