If you implement on_transport_error() you will see events for every
time the proton-c transport connection closes with an error condition

I think this is only the underlying socket failures, but I'm not 100%
sure about that.

I think it would be reasonable to report a bug if you get other errors
reported here.

So try it, and if it doesn't work the way you expect, come back to the

Note, you will probably have to set an idle timeout (heartbeat) to
ensure that you notice in a timely fashion when the peer is
disconnected, or the network goes away.
