    ENH: rename files with txx extension to hxx · 3a1fd1fc

    OTB followed since the beginning the ITK convention and use .txx extension for all
    template classes. Nevertheless, some development tools do not recognize .txx
    file extension. Other tool like GitHub can't do in-browser syntax highlighting for
    txx files I think.
    The root problem is the use of the txx which should be changed to hxx (or hpp).
    In 2011, after an in-depth discussion near April 20, 2011 on the
    Insight-Developers mailing list, ITK rename all txx files to hxx (and event
    prevent the push of .txx files with a pre-commit hook). It happens is major release v4.
    You can find some arguments in the discussion about the change and also in other
    projects related to ITK which applied the same modification, see for instance VXL:
    This commit apply now the same modification for OTB.
    I understand that it will change some habit for developers and don't bring new
    features but I think that in general it is better to stay align with ITK guidelines.
    In my opinion, it always facilitate the use of OTB and ITK together if we share
    when we can the same code architecture, directory organization, naming
