  Correct, I believe.  It looks like you can use FileSender (from t.p.basic)
if you're just sending something off disk (or from any file object, really)

    from twisted.protocols.basic import FileSender

    def sendfile(consumer, fileObj):
        s = FileSender()
        return s.beginFileTransfer(fileObj, consumer
            ).addCallback(lambda _: consumer.finish()

    dC, dL = p.storeFile("path")
    dC.addCallback(sendfile, fileObj)
