If you want to see what the events look like, please feel free
to download.

There does not yet exist a paper describing TUX.

No, they are protocol events.  HTTP is only the first protocol
supported.  And I wouldn't call it "just another" anything,
because there are many facets to its implementation, and this
event structure is only one of them.

I'd suggest downloading it.  You don't have to read all the
source; there is a tux.8 man page that, while dense, does provide
some more information and there's no reason for me to type it here.
There's also a README file that gives some background.
