  transport.disconnecting is horrible (it's an implementation detail, it doesn't work on a lot of transports).  LineReceiver shouldn't be using it.  The feature LineReceiver uses it to implement may be reasonable, though, which is why its code is still how it is.

  If the feature is desired somewhere else, the best way to add it is to either find another way that doesn't rely on transport.disconnecting (and then we can fix LineReceiver too), or factor the code such that all protocols can provide the feature without having more than one method that relies on transport.disconnecting (then we can fix them all at once someday).
