[dojo-contributors] dojo.attr() - no disconnect

Continuing my blog on dojo.attr()....

I've realized that if you use dojo.attr to connect an event, you're  
pretty much stuck with it and can't disconnect it.

dojo.attr(node, "onmouseover")
  - in FF returns null
  - in IE returns the anonymous function from somewhere in dojo.connect.

I think it would be preferable to return the handle to the connection.  
Or more accurately, an array of handles, in the case of more than one
