So, after reading through the code a bit, self.terminal should be an
ITerminalTransport.  There are only a few ITerminalTransport
implementations, several of which are also Protocol subclasses and therefore
have a 'transport' attribute.

I'm not 100% sure what the eventual composiiton of your application will be,
but you could try self.terminal.transport.getPeer(); it might work.

Technically speaking, ITerminalTransport is a subclass of ITransport, which
has a getPeer method.  Therefore any classes which implement
ITerminalTransport without providing getPeer are buggy.  It would be really
helpful if you could provide a patch that addressed the issue you mention
