Yes, and yes :)

The reason is that it ties getting an object to the transport. Every
time you write a new transport, you need to write a new function.
Whereas with the new way, which is the normal way Twisted protocols
work, new transport can be used without writing extra code. In addition
you have the benefits of auto-reconnecting if you want, ability to do
multiple logins over the same PB connection easily, and in general code
that is much cleaner.
