Just a FYI: in the curl project we're dropping axTLS support (and will soon
remove that code) for TLS because of several reasons[1]. We no longer consider
it a good idea to recommend our users to build code with this library since we
doubt its quality and its ability/desire to fix those issues.

Now, SSH has different needs than TLS so the situation isn't exactly
identical, but I would advice caution to anyone building anything that uses
axTLS today.
