[Twisted-Python] general documentation question

Hi Christopher,

Thanks for response, yeah connected is public and it's useable, I use it to
check the connection state before sending any data through my wx GUI.  I
could just as easily create my own from the connectionMade member.  I was
just more curious of the documentation layout, because I'm going to be using
it a lot.

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.
