Yuck. That stuff is super old and I'm surprised it's still even there.

Anyway, it appears 'transport' is unfortunately not actually mentioned
anywhere where it should be in the API docs (which is the Protocol
class, probably). 'delimiter' is fortunately documented in the
LineReceiver class. I'm not sure 'connected' is actually public, but
even if it is it is a pretty useless attribute.
