[Twisted-Python] Proposed change to producer/consumer interface

When a producer unregisters itself using stopConsuming() (see
internet/abstract.py) the consumer closes itself by calling
loseConnection(). I contend this is silly, and that the consuming
FileDescriptor should not close itself.
This is howeever a non-backwards compatible change, so anyone using
producers will need to update their code (though e.g. the FTP code seems to
explicitly close the consumer.)
So - should I make this change or add a new function "unregisterProducer()"
the unregisters the producer without closing the connection?
