Why is it better? It's your software, but really a good question in my
opinion is why should a library
for ssh add support for a network service?
You can find in
in the abstract and in the intro:
" This document describes the SSH transport layer protocol, which
typically runs on top of TCP/IP. The protocol can be used as a basis
for a number of secure network services."
So ssh is about the transport, and not about the networkservice like sftp.
A library for working with ssh (and libssh is) should therefore not
add support for this
networkservice in my opinion, but adding examples howto do this maybe
That's why I gave an example howto do this.
And this is not off-topic.
