Callbacks? But you declare the callbacks in your code. Why does libssh2 have
to change anything for them to be exposed properly? And isn't the key about
how it gets called, not about how it is exposed? I mean, a callback doesn't
have to be exposed at all.

Doesn't our LIBSSH2_API already make our external API use the correct exposure

I - and I can only urge everyone else who works on libssh2 and write patchs
for it etc - am working with the latest git version.

I'm interested, but not for 1.2. I'm feeling far too lonely on the committing
front to take on any new work before I can ship the next release.
