[Twisted-Python] client API issue for Application

I've been talking with nobomb on #twisted about his IRC bot, which he
wants to be able to connect to a list of servers for fail-over (i.e.,
when one server connection fails, try to connect to the nest). We worked
it out so that he'd call app.connectTCP again in his
clientConnectionFailed method of his ClientFactory, but I realized that
the tcpConnectors list in Application *never* gets cleaned out. Should
we have an explicit method to do this, or some kind of automatic
cleaning, or something...?

While browsing through the Application source, I see that the same is
true for the listeners, except for TCP (there's an unlistenTCP, but no
unlistenSSL, frex). There's *also* a dontListenTCP which just raises a
not implemented error. *boggle*
