Summary: A way to get hostkey is needed

Exceprpt from Debian bug #467305.

Client applications may need to obtain server hostkey "as is", in addition to SHA1/MD5 hash returned by libssh2_hostkey_hash.

We really need this to compare the key with the contents of a known_hosts
file.
I see that _LIBSSH2_SESSION has a server_hostkey field but it is private
and can't be accessed via the API. Also there is no information on what
format this is in.
