Perhaps TpBaseClient et al should take an optional TpBaseChannelFactory,
which if not provided, defaults to TpChannelFactory.
TpBaseChannelFactory has one method you need to implement,
create_channel, which gives you a path, and the properties, and expects
you to call whatever preparation you need, eventually calling back to
This would allow you to create a channel factory that could prepare
extra properties, or handle additional channel subclasses.
The default concrete implementation, TpChannelFactory, would do whatever
we expected it to do in the normal case.
