This is an OK resolution to me. For that matter, so would firming up the
legal position of consignment, but I hear nought but a soft sighing
sound where we'd want volunteers to do that work.


<spiv> AaronSw: You should never, ever be creating a transport... Twisted is supposed to do that for you.
<AaronSw> I should never create the tcp.Client stuff or I shouldn't manually set them as the transport?
<spiv> AaronSw: Use reactor.clientTCP (or better yet, reactor.connectTCP in CVS).
<spiv> Don't create tcp.Client directly either.       
<spiv> http://twistedmatrix.com/documents/TwistedDocs/Twisted-0.19.0/twisted/internet/interfaces_IReactorTCP.py.html
<spiv> AaronSw: But of course, that API is deprecated in 0.99  (but creating a tcp.Client directly is even more deprecated :P)
<AaronSw> Are you guys abstraction astronauts or something? ;-)
