Description Jeremy Orlow 2010-11-23 12:29:12 UTC
IDBTransaction.READ_ONLY should probably be 0 rather than 1.  READ_WRITE (which is currently 0) used to be the default, but it no longer is.  Often with enums like this, the 0th item is the default so it probably makes sense to switch the two.

summary:     Switch READ_ONLY and READ_WRITE so that READ_ONLY is 0 since it's the default for transaction().
