Topping eggplant?

I'm not nearly as experienced growing eggplant as I am peppers, but I've got a few growing this year and one is starting to get a little big for my grow tent and it got me thinking, has anyone tried topping an eggplant like a lot of us do with our peppers?
The growth pattern is very similar to peppers, a long stem with leaf buds at the nodes and full sized leaves mostly at the top. Would the you get similar benefits from topping a eggplant than you do with a pepper?
