[Feature Request] Expose Channel._type publicly to avoid multiple isinstance checks #2185

The Problem

Trying to find the ChannelType value for a channel currently involves going through each existing channel type and performing an isinstance check to see if it matches the channel.

As channels already have the _type attribute/property it would be very convenient to expose it publicly, as the checks above could be replaced with a simply attribute access.

The Ideal Solution

_type is renamed to type and returns a ChannelType instead of the channel type value.

The Current Solution

Cycling through possible channel types and performing an isinstance check.


Expose the _type attribute/property of channels for less complex code.
