That's the only change to an existing twisted interface.  The rest can be  
done via checkers and appropriate guard-style wrapper resources.  The  
change to ICredentialFactory is so tiny that I don't know if there is any  
meaningful benefit to making that change in twisted proper, but I'm fine  
with whatever works for the interested parties.
