in response to last two emails (there is one missing in my inbox):

- if we could determinate the type of packet would be awesome.
- the number of channels to handle may vary between 10 and 20. I do
not worry too much about performance at this point.

just to clarify, whats the real difference between a channel and a
stream in libssh2 ?
