 Sorry, yes I meant libssh2_channel_set_blocking()

 And I disagree with you. First, what is API is of course there and we
 don't remove it since we make a promise to support the existing API - but
 it doesn't mean we think all the functions were a good idea so that we
 would add more functions in the similar spirit.

 If we had channel-based timeouts I would say that
 libssh2_channel_set_timeout() would be valuable, but I don't think it is a
 good idea to add it just as shortcut to the session-based timeout

 If you want to discuss this further, I suggest you post to the mailing
 list and argue for it. This is the bug tracker and it really isn't made
 for design discussions.
