This is an unusual thing to want to do.  Any code that does it risks
stomping on other code it doesn't know about.  If you have a factory
serving connections on a particular port, you might want to have that
factory keep track of all clients which are connected to it, then it
can iterate over those clients and disconnect them.

If you use removeAll(), then you'll probably end of breaking some
reactor internals (like threading support and maybe other stuff).
However, if that's your goal, then the list comprehension you
pasted is more or less correct.
