[Twisted-Python] Using twisted.conch

Hi all.

I'm struggling a bit with twisted.conch.
I've read the howto at 
I can understand this example fine.
For a simple application, it works fine to subclass SSHChannel and 
implement all the code in that classes methods.
However I would like to be able to implement something as follows:

class SSHWrapper:
    def connect(self,hostname,username,password):
       #Create SshTransport object
    def runCommand(self,command)
       #Use SshChannel object to run command, return a deferred
    def disconnect(self):

The problem is that, due to the ClientFactory creating instances of the 
relevant objects for you (SSHClientTransport,SSHUserAuthClient,etc), you 
are left without a reference to the SSHChannel object,required to run 
the command.

Is there any way to get the SSHChannel object from the 
SSHClientTransport instance.
Any advice with this matter would be appreciated.
