The only purpose of the TextSink Object is to be subclassed.  It
contains the minimum set of class methods that all text sinks must have.
While all may be inherited, the direct descendant of TextSink <function>must
specify</function> some of them as TextSink does contain enough information to
be a valid text sink by itself.  Do not try to use
the TextSink as a valid sink for the Text widget; it is not intended
to be used as a sink by itself.
